Polaris is the software (also known as an ILS, or Integrated Library System) all TRAC libraries use.Every item in TRAC is catalogued in Polaris. Libraries use Polaris to lend out items and keep track of patrons. Patrons search the shared collection using TRACpac online.

The tutorials on our website to help you learn Polaris include learning how to log in and log off, search, check books out to patrons and check them back in, and searching and finding items in the catalogue. You can find these tutorials on the Basic Polaris Procedures page.

Because all libraries within TRAC all share the Polaris software, we have some TRAC Operational Guidelines that we adhere to. You can find them at the TRAC Procedures page, and if you have any questions, ask your consultant.
