SebinaYOU is much more than an OPAC


Each SebinaYOU is the result of careful graphic and service design, modelled on the identity of your library.

SebinaYOU speaks the language of your users, for an increasingly international, communicative and welcoming library portal.


An excellent user experience for all your users, regardless of the access device: smartphone, tablet or PC.


Are you a public reading library, a university library, a hub or a library system? Each SebinaYOU is designed around your unique requirements.

A SebinaYOU profile for everyone

Activate a personalised profile for your library or 'system', linked to the SebinaYOU portal of your library hub. The profile, using the same software infrastructure of the hub, will have its own visual and catalogue identity tailored to your library, with specific services designed for users.


SebinaYOU KIDS is the portal entirely dedicated to the little readers of your library. From fonts to graphics, from services to research, every detail is child-friendly to encourage children to play with the catalogue and learn. A digital space in which children and parents can discover the library's resources. Depending on the age groups, create the SebinaYOU KIDS that best suits your users.

The digital library assistant

Make the chatbot available to your users: an interactive virtual assistant, integrated in SebinaYOU, for basic reference and loan information. The system allows users to request and obtain in real time all the information they need to use the library services, online and on-site, and information regarding their own situation.

For example, the user can immediately receive information regarding: opening hours and addresses of libraries, document delivery services, loans and reservations in progress, books read and much more.
