Very Small Library System for LUG

Hi /usr/lib/infoer's,

Besides being a librarian, I am also president of our local Linux User Group. We have a few publishers that have started sending us books to review and put in our [very] small library (so far we have less then 10 books, but hopefully it will grow quickly:-). I'd like to put together an OPAC for these books.

Besides the normal name/title/subject/status stuff, I'd like to be able to include the reviews in the record. Since we are talking about something small, I'm sure I can throw something together. Before I do, does anyone have any suggestions for an Open Source package to look at that may already do this that they can recommend.

I know about some of the bigger solutions like Koha, but that would be overkill for my needs.

...can be found here of various efforts around what you're looking for. In many respects Bookcase hits many nice features, esp. if you are of an xml/xslt mind. Oddbook has a very nice web feel but primarily does reviews, not so much the OPACy stuff. Fyi, -dchud

I really like openbiblio. I've just started tinkering with it, but it's very easy to install. I have it installed on my website, which is on a shared server. It's one of the few complete cataloguing/opac systems that doesn't require root.

I have only put in a few books so far, but I like the interface. You can change the fields if they don't apply to you, you could probably change one of those to reviews/notes or a freetext field.

You can change the fields if they don't apply The Microsoft MOM 2005 Conceptual Guide describes high-level overview information about MOM architecture, components, and features. This guide does not include information about deploying, operating, or maintaining MOM in an enterprise environment. This guide has been created for the final release of Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) 2005.
This guide is primarily for anyone who is evaluating MOM 2005 for use with an existing IT infrastructure, or for operators, administrators, management pack authors, and support staff who must develop a basic understanding of MOM 2005.
