Sage Colleges live on LibLime Academic Koha 4.8

North Bethesda, MD, February 23, 2012. LibLime, a division of PTFS, and WALDO (Westchester Academic Library Directors Organization) announce that the Sage Colleges are live on LibLime Academic Koha 4.8. Sage is the 30th WALDO institution to deploy LibLime Academic Koha.

LibLime Academic Koha allows libraries with an emphasis on music to provide focused searches on key parts of the MARC record related to music. Music cataloging uses a number of MARC bibliographic fields that contain semantic information about the musical work being cataloged. LibLime Academic Koha covers indexing and searching of these fields as well as displaying them in the catalog.

LibLime Academic Koha has two new options for academic libraries interested in optimizing OPAC search response time. These options, controlled by systems preferences, allow for local customization of the OPAC search results page so that results details can be displayed in a speedy and user friendly way without compromising system performance.

LibLime Academic Koha features staff and patron initiated recalls. From the OPAC or the staff module, a recall can be placed on an item checked out letting the current holding patron know the item is of interest to another patron. If desired, fines can be established on recalls which are ignored by the holding patron.
