Koha Earns Tops Marks in the 2016 Perceptions Survey

Koha, the world’s first fully web based and open source integrated library system, received top marks in this year’s “Perceptions 2016: An International Survey of Library Automation” conducted by Marshall Breeding. The survey ranked both Koha supported independently as well as Koha supported by various open source vendors, and gave the world a glimpse into how Koha stacks up against the competition. In many categories Koha excelled in comparison to the proprietary alternatives in the marketplace. Some mentionable rankings from this year’ survey include:

  • Koha (vendor supported) ranked #1 in Company Loyalty for Small Public Libraries and Smaller Academic Libraries and #1 in Customer Support for Medium Sized Public Libraries
  • Koha (vendor supported) ranked #2 in General ILS Satisfaction, Overall ILS Functionality and Satisfaction with Customer Support for Small Public Libraries
  • Koha (vendor supported) ranked #3 in General ILS Satisfaction for All Public Libraries
  • Koha, supported independently, and/or Koha supported by a vendor, ranked in the top 3 for all Academic Libraries in the categories of:
    • General ILS Satisfaction
    • General ILS Functionality
    • Effectiveness in Managing Print Resources
    • Satisfaction with Customer Support
    • Company Loyalty

The survey was conducted internationally and responses were submitted from over 92 different countries, making up roughly 30% of the total responses.

The full results of this year’s survey can be viewed at: https://librarytechnology.org/perceptions/2016/

Since its creation, Koha has become the most downloaded ILS in the world with tens of thousands of libraries utilizing it globally.

Full-featured ILS: In use worldwide in libraries of all sizes, Koha is a true enterprise-class ILS with comprehensive functionality including basic and advanced options. Koha includes modules for acquisitions, circulation, cataloging, serials management, authorities, flexible reporting, label printing, multi-format notices, offline circulation for when Internet access is not available, and much more. Koha will work for consortia of all sizes, multi-branch, and single-branch libraries.

Multilingual and translatable: Koha has a large number of available languages, with more languages every year.

Full text searching: Powerful searching and an enhanced catalogue display that can use content from Amazon, Google, LibraryThing, Open Library, and Syndetics, among others.

Library Standards Compliant: Koha is built using library standards and protocols such as MARC 21, UNIMARC, z39.50, SRU/SW, SIP2, SIP/NCIP, ensuring interoperability between Koha and other systems and technologies, while supporting existing workflows and tools.

Web-based Interfaces: Koha’s OPAC, circ, management and self-checkout interfaces are all based on standards-compliant World Wide Web technologies–XHTML, CSS and Javascript–making Koha a truly platform-independent solution.

Free Software / Open Source:  Koha is distributed under the Free Software General Public License (GPL) version 3 or later.

No Vendor Lock-in: It is an important part of the free software promise that there is no vendor lock-in: libraries are free to install and use Koha themselves if the have the in-house expertise or to purchase support or development services from the best available sources. Libraries should be free to change support company and export their data at any time, make sure your support company allows this. For more information please visit: https://koha-community.org

What’s on in koha-devel #8

by Jonathan Druart
[ from Koha mailing list ]

Koha 16.11 and its Debian packages have now been released [1].

As Mirko noted Debian Wheezy is no longer supported and Debian packages won’t be provided for 3.22 [2].

I should also added that some important bugs have been reported recently and it may be better to wait for the 16.11.1 version to be released before upgrading [3, 4, 5].
Note that if you database password contain Unicode characters, you should also wait for bug 17720 (CSRF token is not generated correctly).

= Refactoring =
== Move to the Koha namespace ==
We keep on moving the C4::Members module code to the Koha namespace and a few subroutine of C4::Circulation are going to be moved as well [6].

== Remove the biblioitems.marcxml field ==
I have been asking for help on bug 17196 ( Move marcxml out of the biblioitems table ) for months now and this will certainly be my last attempt to get attention on it. As we are at the beginning of the release we should focus on it to get it pushed soon. That way we will have time to catch and fix bugs if we find some.

== Rewrite of the upload feature =
A month ago Marcel started to refactor the upload section [7]. This is the groundwork to start improvements in this area. Once this is pushed we will be able to add new features, so please test!

= Template Toolkit syntax for notices =
Kyle started a discussion some months ago [8] to switch from our home-made syntax for notices to the Template Toolkit syntax. That would bring us a lot of flexibility to write the notices. But to do so, we need a plan! We already started to support this syntax (inside 16.11) but then we have to decide what to do next. Currently the plan would be to replace the default syntax (bug 15278), then reveal in the editor that you can use this new syntax (bug 15277) and finally add documentation to help people writing/porting their own notices (bug 15276). We need to get opinions to know how we could move forward. Kyle is going to start a new topic on the Koha mailing list for that. Stay tuned!

= Standardize our EXPORT =
A bit more technically, I would need developer’s attention on bug 17600 (Standardize the EXPORT). At the end of the last release, very bad bugs appeared at the last minute because of our circular dependencies and the way we export subroutines from routines. Everything is (quickly) explained on that bug and a patchset has been submitted for discussion. If you are aware of how we could fix that cleanly, please jump into the discussion.

The next general IRC meeting is on December 7th, 14 UTC.
