I stumbled on the site for migration at Vicki Teal Lovely’s library group, LINK (Library Interchange Network). The are keeping a “log blog” of their migration from Dynix. We did this as well, right here, over a year ago. After an massive inventory effort using Koha’s “last seen” feature, we are ready to move to Koha 3.2 with support from the Koha Community.
Butte is also looking at Kete for a platform for our digital collection…so we will blog our experiences with Kete over the next few months.
For those who are thinking about migrating to Koha let me say it has been a very satisfying experience for us. Even though we are be a bit behind on updates and bug fixes everything runs smoothly (Results of the LibLime meltdown). We are self hosted and very glad we decided to control our own box. We have on site and local support which many libraries don’t have.
Thanks for sharing your experience Vicki and SCLS.
Here in Butte, we will be cheering you on!
