Most vendors provide admin support and hosting so this alleviates having a librarian/dept that works strictly on library systems, at least in small academic libraries. Looking to change job title & description for a Systems Librarian to an Electronic Resources Librarian as their job is to work on interoperatibility of the various platforms we use for discovery of both print and electronic resources. Over the past year we concluded that it was our ILS vendor, when updating their system, would purge our electronic resources and we would need to re-add them each time (happened twice in one year). We are not currently using a subscription service either due to poor performance on their part. Another platform we use is Third Iron's Browzine, along with EDS and Bibliovation.

Bibliovation has improved since release, as our regional consortium has worked with them to correct problems. The reporting tool has seen several issues that needed to be fixed. (Library type: Public; collection size: medium; ils satisfaction: 7)

Liblime Bibliovation is based on the open source Koha system. Some of it's shortcomings are problems introduced into the Bibliovation version that is no longer the same as the open source version. (Library type: School; collection size: small; ils satisfaction: 7)

We have been using Koha with support from LibLime for about 12 years. During the past year we explored various ILS options from a variety of companies. We finally settled on Follett Destiny LMS and proposed the migration from Koha. The proposal was accepted and we are in the midst of the migration now. Our hope is that the Follett Destiny LMS will give our patrons much more access to both the print and electronic collections as well as the ability to create their own collections of resources for units of instruction.

We have a fairly large collection of digital objects associated with our historical collection. Bibliovation does a good job of integrating these digital objects into the general search. Our agency mandates that all applications sit in the government cloud, and this inhibits the use of several other ILS options.

PTFS/LibLime is responsive to our needs, but we do not work with them directly at the library-level. Problems and development go through our shared system, the [...]. (Library type: Public; collection size: large; ils satisfaction: 7)
