Comments

One of the best things about the ILS we use is the fact that it is administered by a library consortium as opposed to a for-profit vendor. In my opinion, librarians need to do more to take control of the products needed to provide service to our communities. In a profit environment we end up with expensive, less than desirable products such as Overdrive. (Type: Public)

LibLime Academic Koha is the version of Koha we use from LibLime. I mention this because there are at least two different versions of Koha that LibLime supports. (Type: Academic)

I love our ILS, branded [..] , administered by [...] in [...] . The only aspect that needs improvement is the functionality of the the reports for staff. (Type: Public)

[...] There are things I miss about Horizon but you can't beat the Koha's price. (Type: Public)

Our ILS is open source! (Type: Public)

Our school has two physical libraries and an archive. The Koha ILS allows us to have three "locations" that can transfer items and manage hold request between the three locations. (Type: School)

[...] ISD is a poor school district and could not afford anything but open source circ/cat. KOHA has proved to be a good match with our library. User friendly and cataloging is easy to perform. We use LibLime for support after several years of problems with support. They respond in a timely manner and contacting them is easy. (Type: School)

[...] is what we call the Union Catalog that the [...] maintains. There has been a lot of growth over the past 2 years and the number of libraries using [...] has doubled (currently 71 libraries). We expect to add as many as 50 libraries in 2015. PTFS has been fantastic in meeting our day to day needs as well as handling a massive amount of migrations. Open source as a platform is perfect for our consortia because there are all types of libraries represented and we require a dynamic platform that legacy ILS vendors can't provide and are not affordable. (Type: Consortium)

[...] (Type: Academic)

[...] In our consortium there are stark differences in opinion between the people who use the system every day all day and the consortium managers that have direct contact with Lib-lime. It is hard to find a fan of Lib-lime Koha at the librarian level. Lib-lime Koha is slow, our database implementation extremely inefficient, development is virtually nonexistent, and the patron experience is horrible. I hear complaints every day. (Type: Public)

Koha works fine for our small public library. PTFS/Liblime support isn't much better than adequate but again, its fine for our small public library. Although I haven't given any high marks to our vendor or the ILS itself, I in no way see us ever going back to one of the traditional ILS vendors nor do I see us switching to one of the other companies that supports open source. (Type: Public)

A few small issues aside, Koha (hosted) works well for a small library. However, one aspect of the ILS that needs improvement is its bare-bones inventory tools. (Type: Academic)

[...] migrated to Koha in mid-November, so our experience is still fresh, and we are still learning about all the functionality the system. We believe that being part of a consortium with over one million items is a boon to our patrons. (Type: Public)

There were two major upgrades to the LibLime Koha software. One made improvements to the acquisitions module. The other made a major overhaul to the financial piece of LibLime Koha. LibLime has also been working on a discovery layer for the academic version of LibLime Koha which we should have access to in 2015. This should provide improved access to digital resources. (Type: Consortium)
