Bookwhere is also an excellent product with a constantly updated  
database Z39.50 profiles pre-grouped into categories (i.e. academic,  
public, etc...) as well as customizable.  It also comes with a pretty  
good batch MARC editing tool.  Windows only though a lot of library  
software is.

I know of at least two Evergreen consortiums that use it extensively  
and I've done some real simple tutorial videos on it in the past.

Quoting Jason Etheridge <jason at esilibrary.com>:
