Comments

We did not use a vendor for our ILS. We installed it ourselves with the help of a knowledgeable volunteer. (Type: Public)

Some questions cannot be appropriate to our situation, since we manage the Koha installation only with internal HR, without the help of any vendor. (Type: Academic)

Please note that the library is using a self-hosted version of an open-source ILMS and therefore the questions relating to vendor and support are not applicable. (Type: Art)

Since I installed Koha by myself with advice from the Koha discussion list, some of the questions don't apply. I have also modified Koha's templates to use it as a local authors catalog using Medline records. MAC-MLA thought this was sufficiently interesting to accept my poster presentation at their 2014 meeting. I find Koha easy to use, easy to set up, and easy to run. (Type: Medical)

Our system has not been upgraded appropriately, and now, our local holdings information is extremely difficult to update or migrate. We are working on having Koha 3.14 or better up and running for Fall 2015. (Type: Academic)

software muy robusto (Type: School)

I skipped a lot of questions because we use an open-source ILS (Koha) that is managed in-house. (We purchased our server, but I set up the ILS and I am "customer support.") We also don't use our ILS to manage electronic resources at this time. (Type: School)

Many of the above questions were not applicable as we are currently using an open source ILS, Koha. The Library Director and the Systems Network Consultant for the [...] completed the conversion and provide most of the support for the ILS. We also access the Koha community for resources. (Type: Public)

The Koha open source community continues to impress. We are very please with our ILS and have no plans to look elsewhere. (Type: School)

We manage the open source Koha system by ourselves. [...] Support comes from the Koha developers community. (Type: Museum)

[...] has it's own IT team support for providing system implementation support to software issue handling as well as research on newer technologies. So, technically we never provisioned any third party for implementing the software rather we simply acquired the source codes from the respective websites and did the rest on our own. (Type: Academic)

All development, maintenance etc is conducted "in-house" -- no outside contractors/vendors have ever been used. (Type: Special)

Our technical support found that open source software requires more input than the School's budget allows for, so problems are not speedily fixed. I, on the other hand love Koha, but if we changed it would not be to another open source product. (Type: School)

We have just implemented KOHA from CDS/ISIS by converting data through MARC EDIT and also support from the KOAH Community. (Type: Special)

We have recently migrated and we are still adapting. (Type: Public)

We implemented Koha ourselves without a vendor, and with some wonderful assistance on the part of other Koha users who answered questions and helped us troubleshoot. (Type: Special)

Some items were left blank because our library is already using Koha, an open source ILS that we maintain internally. Libraries are in the forefront of change. Financial, organizational, service delivery, product management, and client interaction. Changes are happening radically and frequently that buying a typical OTS ILS is no longer practical. (Type: National)

I believe KOHA has the ability to meet our needs very well, but our IT person has installed it and does the work on it. For some reason he has not been able to get KOHA to automatically re-index, so at times we have 6 months of new materials that do not show up when they are searched for. (Type: Academic)
