GPL'ed Reading List Software

Jon writes: "Loughborough University Library has released version 3 of our Reading List system. This can be picked up from our software distribution page. The Reading List system was developed at Loughborough to fill a perceived gap in the available commercial systems and also to allow us to customise the system to our needs. It is written in Perl, runs under Linux and makes use of a MySQL database and the Net::Z3950 and MARC Perl modules to provide Z39.50 links into existing library systems. It has been in production use at Loughborough for well over 2 years now and earlier versions have been taken by other local Universities for their own reading list systems. This is the first major public distribution of this system to a wider general audience."
