North Bethesda, MD, May 30, 2013- The Central City Public Library, located in Central City, NE, has joined the Pioneer Consortium and will participate in the Pioneer LibLime union catalog for all collection and patron management services.
The Central City Public Library staff will work with LibLime Project Managers to migrate bibliographic, item, and patron data from its legacy ILS system. Central City Public Library will enjoy autonomy within the LibLime Koha union catalog, as LibLime Koha includes support for local ownership of patron records, local ownership of items records linked to communal bibliographic records, and OPAC group searching for pre-designated collections. Central City Public Library patrons will also benefit from other functionality in the software sponsored by Pioneer, such as Enriched EDI for acquisitions and expanded fines and fees support in circulation.
