Tellico-1.1.5

From fm: "A bug that caused too many temporary image files to be written was fixed. Searching for multiple ISBN values using z39.50 was fixed. A layout bug for paragraphs in the Fancy template was fixed. IBS searches now reverse the author name. "Xbox 360" was added to the Amazon.com game searches. Deleting and re-adding a field by the same name no longer crashes. Default fields are no longer recreated when adding search results. The Spanish translation wasu pdated."

PALINET podcast on free software and libraries

Tagged:  

At code4lib 2006 John Iliff of PALINET and I discussed free software in libraries for an audio podcast. I had given a lightning talk on the topic "why libraries should support the Free Software Foundation" the day before, and we touched on many of the same themes in a longer-than-lightning discussion.

Have a listen to the podcast here and please consider supporting the FSF, or any other group contributing to the free and open source software infrastructure.

SimpleServer v1.01 -- now with SRW/SRU support

Index Data has released version 1.01 of their SimpleServer toolkit for implementing information retrieval servers in Perl, now with support for SRW/SRU.

The built-in CQL parser makes it possible to write a single set of 'glue' routines for your backend database, and have instant support for both Z39.50, SRW, and SRU. Existing SimpleServer-based servers can implement SRW/SRU simply by upgrading to the latest version of the software and adding configuration to determine the mapping of the CQL query language.

Documentation and code is available from Index Data or CPAN.

PhpMyLibrary-2.2.1

Tagged:  

The PhpMyLibrary version 2.2.1 has been released to the public. It can be downloaded here (PhpMyLibrary-2.2.1)! or here!

Visit Project Site

Initial Release of ver 2.2.1

This is the initial working version of 2.2.1 series. Advance search is under development. Basic search has been done. Cataloging module has been replaced totally by the cataloging source code included in the 2.2.1 release. Base code has been laid out. Improvements and bugs fixing ongoing.

Things to be improved that has been discovered in 2.2.1:

1. Tags listing, should include the whole marc consisting of 180+ tags,
current is 60+ (the basics)

2. Advance search. Will be doing some extra-effort in this function because except, union, and difference database functions are not available yet in mysql 4.x, 5.x . This is why this function is still not finish. But the basic search is already working fine. Advance search function is so easy to be coded in using postgresql as database but default webhosting companies use mysql.

3. Improve and/or create serials features.

4. Improve the patron management features.

5. Adapt/Create the barcoding features.

6. Improve the printing outputs.

7. Improve the configuration management, not-to-use the edit the direct php file online.

8. Improve the Borrowing/Circulation management, wherein book and patron/student use barcode enabled id's.Goal has been done. To create a new cataloging interface more easy than previous versions. I'd wanted to fix everything but this will take probably 6 months, This is why i just decided to release what has been done so that you or others may benefit from this new features right away. And perhaps, you or they can code more fast than i am and better improve the code-base for their use.

Anyways this is it. the 2.2.1 current development snapshot.

Info on 2.x.x series of PhpMyLibrary

2.2.1-x - the current version. this is good for beginners, and non-librarians as it uses point-and-click adding of tags and dilimmiters.

2.1.1-x - good for former CDS/ISIS users because it uses templates named .wkt located at polerio/module/config/worksheets/.

2.0.3-x - the cataloging system for advance users or library professionals because of strict manual USMARC-based encoding.

Thank you for suggesting improvements to the PhpMyLibrary, the open source library automation system.

West Liberty Public Library Migrates to Koha

Tagged:  

WEST LIBERTY PUBLIC LIBRARY, WEST LIBERTY, IA--March 2, 2006--
LibLime, the leader in open-source solutions for libraries, announced today that the West Liberty Public Library located in Iowa, USA has migrated to Koha, the first open-source Integrated Library System. This makes West Liberty the second public library system in the US to switch to Koha.

Tim McMahon, Technical Services librarian at West Liberty Public, said "We started looking for a new system when we tried to get our old one online and not only did the project fail, but it caused serious damage to our records. We chose Koha because with open source there is always the possibility someone will add a feature you need or if you have the knowledge, you can add it yourself."

The Koha system is installed on a Linux server and provides West Liberty with web-based access to cataloging, authority control, circulation, acquisitions, and serials control. Patron images are displayed on the circulation page so that circulation staff can easily identify patrons. Online access to the catalog as well as online member services (such as online reserves and renewals) are available through Koha's OPAC module. Enriched catalog records, provided by Amazon.com allow users to view--along with record information--jacket images, book reviews, descriptions, tables of contents and more. The OPAC can be found online at: http://opac.wlpl.org.

"It's been a long wait in the US public library sector for the second Koha migration", explains Joshua Ferraro, President, Technology for LibLime, "but the race was on in 2006". Several other public libraries are expected to migrate later in the first quarter of 2006: the nine libraries in the Crawford County Federated Library System in Pennsylvania and the Stow Monroe Falls Public Library in Ohio.

About Koha
