PALINET & LibLime

Jun - 23 - 2007
Nicole C. Engard

Hopefully this will make Open Source a more viable option for libraries who have been holding off:

PALINET is aware that not all of our members have the technical support or skills necessary to install or test the open source applications that are currently available. We're looking at a number of ways to address this issue, but we've taken two initial steps already. First, a member Technology Caucus has begun regular discussions of open source software tools in monthly meetings. Yesterday, a group of library developers met at the PALINET offices in Philadelphia to install test copies of Koha and Evergreen for evaluation and comparison. It's my hope that we'll be able to put together a couple of really clean, well integrated, model systems, which will demonstrate the kind of functionality that is possible with these open source ILS solutions.

Second, we're just finalizing an agreement with LibLime, a leader in open source solutions for libraries, to offer discounted setup and support for the Koha Classic, and Koha Zoom ILS software. See our announcement at ALA Annual 2007.
