Loving the new addition (editions)

LibLime has just announced the addition of an editions tab to the Nelsonville Public Library’s catalog (powered by Koha). In short – Koha now has FRBR!

There's been quite a lot of talk lately in library tech circles about OCLC's new commercial xISBN web service as well as similar free services available from LibraryThing and PINES. ….

I'm happy to announce that the Nelsonville Public Library has just put live a new web services module in Koha that supports all three of these services, and exposes the content in a new "╦ťEditions' tab on the OPAC detail page for every record.

In true Koha fashion, this option can be turned on/off by the library. It also allows you to choose whether to include results from LibraryThing and throttles the number of queries sent to xISBN in order to stay within the realms of their terms of free service.

This is way cool!!
