The program consists of cataloging (for handling adding/editing/deleting/searching of materials), circulation (so the librarian can handle user related management items), and the webpac module (where the World searches the catalog of your library). The program also has an import export feature, and strictly follows the USMARC standard for adding materials.

Changes: This version now contains the Cataloging module, which lets a librarian add, edit, and delete catalog entries. It can also modify or delete existing imported catalog entries. A Holdings module was also added, enabling a librarian to add, edit, and delete accession numbers of specific materials. The Record Import module was enhanced so that it can import a library's existing ISIS files. The JavaScript in the WebPAC module has been enhanced."

Changes: This version is in the form of a WebPAC module. The Import MARC record function was added, which will let you add new bibliographic data to your database. There is both a Post-nuke and stand-alone version available."

It is based on the wonderful MRBS (Meeting Room Booking System) and is designed to mediate access to public stations in libraries." The live systems look great, congrats Art!

PhpMyLibrary-1.0.2

FFR writes: "PHPMy Library Looks promising, but the interface could use a designers touch. Just the basics folks, but fun to read the code and learn. From their site: 'Our project goal is to create web-based library automation application that will handle all transaction online. PhpMyLibrary is a PHP MySQL Library automation application. The program consist of cataloging, circulation, and the webpac module. The programs also has an import export feature. The program strictly follow the USMARC standard for adding materials." Note the distinction, it's not another "my library" despite the name.

OpenBook-0.8

Tagged:  

Congrats to the folks over at Technology Resource Foundation for actually delivering a Technical Beta Preview of OpenBook roughly upon their promised date. It looks to be an already working system, guaranteed to wow (if the OSSIG session at ALA last month is an accurate gauge), if still at the to-be-expected not-fully-polished state of an 0.8 release.

OpenBook is a Koha-inspired, GPL-licensed system, apparently rewritten from scratch in more than 20k lines of php. [Update 2001-7-16: see this post on the Koha list for TRF's announcement and more explanation of the relationship between OpenBook and Koha. -dc]
