    on January 30 2009 January 30 2009 by admin Here s a interesting article comparing and contasting the Koha Evergree and Rome ILS systems I stumbled upon it because it happens to link to my Koha VMWare Appliance page Linky Offline Circ being used by NExpress Posted on January 30 2009 January 30 2009 by admin NExpress is apparently a consortium of libraries in New England and New York the Northeast Kansas Library System s shared catalog project I found a page linking to the Offline Circ download Linky Koha 3 Development Updates Posted on January 30 2009 January 30 2009 by admin It s been awhile since I posted last so I thought I d let everyone know what I m doing development wise involving Koha 3 We are about 5 weeks out from the point where we have to be ready to switch over from using the dev week development version of Koha to 3 which is based on dev week but with many differences To get ready I ve had to port a number of features from dev week to Koha 3 These include Porting my Reserves System updates from dev week to Koha 3 Porting my Rotating Collections system from dev week to Koha 3 Adding the ability to pay fines by an amount paid rather than paying individual fines one at a time Porting my Fines On Return system where actual fines are not generated until an item is checked in I think it s a great system and our librarians definitely prefer it to Koha s standard fines system Porting my Clubs Services feature from dev week to Koha 3 This is the largest and complex addition to Koha I have made and I m done with the basic feature but I haven t

    75 unique user s logging in each day The system has worked very well the few issues we have are connected to the fact that I have customized our particular LibKi installation to integrate with the Koha ILS By doing this we are able to have a single username and password for each patron for both Koha and LibKi Those issues have been resolved and we have not had any

    I wish I had gone with KiLock for the humor LibKi was written to take some of the load of handling the public computer systems off our librarians The libraries currently use sign in sheets and have to keep track of who is on which computer LibKi allows a patron to login and a timer keeps track of how much time they have left I ve written a script to import our patron data from Koha each night and to reset every patrons allotment to 30 minutes a day The entire system is written in PHP The daemon is cli only PHP The web interface is built on CakePHP and allows librarians to alter a patron s minutes log them out disable their account and send the user a message The kiosk client is written in PHP Gtk and should run on any OS with Gtk support I ve tested it in KDE and XFCE and it work s great I ll be putting up a new section for LibKi on this site soon But for now you can peruse the code at sourceforge here http sourceforge net projects libki Happy Holidays Recent Posts Koha 3 8 Virtual Appliances are

    IT Technician My primary job for the past year and a half has been to work on the Open Source ILS Koha so that it would meet our needs as a replacement ILS I created a new Librarian Interface add a Clubs and Services module added a Rotating Collections module and submitted many bug fixes and small features I also created a side project called Koha Tools that houses many useful additions that didn t belong as part of Koha itself such as a replacement fines generator a set of fancy reports a Firefox extension and many other things The CCFLS also paid the company Liblime to ingrate the Zebra indexing engine into Koha thus speeding it up well over one hundred fold Liblime and the rest of the Koha team gave us tons of help getting up and running I have to admit that when I first looked at the source code for Koha I was intimidated but now I know the system inside and out I ve never seen a more shining example of Open Source Software at work We give and others benefit Others give and we benefit It s a great system Kyle Recent Posts Koha
