Open Source ILS Koha and Evergreen “Sand Boxes”

Submitted by Peter Liu, MIIS

Open Source integrated Library Systems (ILS) of Koha and Evergreen are rapidly gaining popularity in the public and academic library community around the country. As a result, the Pacific Library Partnership (PLP), which MIIS Library is a member, has set up “sand boxes” for member library staff to play with. Here is the URL:

Staff who interested in Koha and Evergreen ILS will be able to log in and explore the software hands-on. The site has log in information for circulation staff (Koha and Evergreen), cataloging staff (Evergreen) and patrons (Koha and Evergreen).

With a new relationship to their open source ILS, library staff at all levels can participate actively in making the online library experience better for staff and customers alike.
