After several years of in‐house development to meet its needs for automated serials control, cuts in staff and resources led Loughborough University to look to commercially‐available packages to further its automation plans. The MicroLinx package from Faxon was selected. The functionality of the system is described, and an assessment of performance given. Loughborough will soon change to BLCMP as part of a wider automation strategy, not without some regrets.
