Acquis

Kevin writes: "The Library Acquisitions Database manages the ordering and receiving of items, such as books and video cassettes, for a library system, featuring individual-branch buying and budgeting. It is developed in Perl (with DBI) with a MySQL database backend. It is developed by the TNRD Library System, which has already developed Public Access Terminal Control (PATC), for user access control PATC. Acquis is still under development, and no releases have been made yet. However, the source can be checked out of CVS with anonymous check-out and installed on a web server. See Information on accessing the CVS repository or Browse the CVS repository online. If you are interested in joining development on Acquis, please read the Developer's Guide. Also available is a graph of the Database Schema. Interested developers can e-mail Chad Wallace [cmdrwalrus@canada.com] to request to be added to the project."
