Following Along the Open Source Trail

trailI’m glad to see that the SHARE system is not the only consortium that has started looking into open source ILS options. This post from Brian Herzog at the Swiss Army Librarian shows that libraries around the US are chomping at the proverbial bit for a better product. Interestingly, Herzog notes that he has to “apologize to patrons on a daily basis for such a difficult catalog interface,” and then links to their regional catalog. Their catalog, like ours, is a SirsiDynix product. The Merrimack Valley Library Consortium’s site looks a whole lot easier to navigate than ours, though.
