Open Source ILS Library Technology Report

Dec - 8 - 2008
Nicole C. Engard

I haven’t gotten a copy of this report yet, so I can’t tell you (first hand) what’s covered, but I didn’t want you to miss out. So, if you get a chance, stop by your library and check out a copy of the newest Library Technology Report by Marshall Breeding (that’s what I’ll be doing).

In this issue, Breeding details the differences between using an open source approach to that of using conventional proprietary software for automated operations.

“In the past, our options were differentiated on the basis of features, functionality, price, and performance of the software and the perceived ability for a given company to develop its products into the future and provide adequate support. Do these factors differ with open source ILS products?”

Breeding’s report can help answer that question as well as defines open source and provides an overview of the various open source options currently available to libraries, including Koha and Evergreen.

Keep an eye out for more info from me after I get a chance to read this guide.
