North Bethesda, MD, December 11, 2015 – The Mongui Maduro Library has gone live on LibLime Academic Koha 5.12. The experienced Library staff at the institution worked closely with the LibLime Project Management team to successfully migrate bibliographic, item, authority, patron and transactional data from several legacy systems to LibLime Academic Koha. The Library will take advantage of much of the functionality offered in the application, including:
- Single screen cataloging editor with MARC21 validation and the option to embed local cataloging guidelines; with support for MARC Authority records, MARC Bibliographic records, and MARC Holdings records
- Circulation functionality supporting sophisticated holds management, course reserves, term loans and proxy borrowing
- Discovery Layer offering a cloud-based, fast and locally customized index of a library's information assets, with an easy-to-use and powerful way of accessing all of that information from a single search box
- EDI-compliant acquisitions with multi-tier fund hierarchy, purchase suggestions, invoice creation, and year-end rollover
