A Question to Librarians – Cataloguing Software for a School Library

As some of you may know I work in a high school. Our new librarian wants to improve cataloguing system of the school’s library – the previous librarian has used some mix of paper catalog and Excel spreadsheets. The final inventory showed that she had done a very poor job.

Can you advise some freeware, shareware or free for educational institutions software that may be used at our library? If this software allows use of RFID – that would be even better!

Thanks!
