Bethesda, MD – July 28, 2011 -For over two years, LibLime has worked with Westchester Academic Library Directors Organization (WALDO), to build an ILS specifically for academic libraries. LibLime Academic Koha is the result. Designed, tested and used by academic librarians, LibLime Academic Koha offers the right platform for making an ILS be all that it can be. With LibLime and WALDO, academic librarians have the opportunity to work with like-minded professionals toward a shared goal of designing software that works for them.
Barcodeless Charges -- If you are using LibLime Academic Koha, your staff can charge out an item record that does not contain a barcode. This is extremely helpful when placing personal copies on Course Reserves, without placing adhesive materials on the personal copy. A staff member simply searches for the title – right from the circulation page – and selects the item of choice. A temporary record is then created and the item can be linked to a Course and circulated as per local policies.
Expanded Overrides -- If you are using LibLime Academic Koha, your circulation is governed by a series of overrides designed to allow for more student worker support, yet with strong staff supervision. Where warranted and appropriate, senior staff can make exceptions via override permissions. All these permissions and exceptions can be established using a set up utility in the administrative module. Based on how the local circulation policies are configured, there are various instances where staff can override at point of need.
