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.
