Liblime is an leading provider of open-source solutions
for libraries and ASCC is a nonprofit, member-owned consortium of over 40 multi-type
libraries, including 24 public libraries (out of 115 in the state), 15
schools, 3 academic institutions and 1 special library. The Koha installation will be hosted at one of LibLime's secure data
centers. The Library has also contracted with LibLime for full
migration of their ILS data, as well as support and training services.
ASCC’s new Koha union catalog will contain over 800,000 bibliographic
records from libraries with collections that range in size from 2,730
to 117,000 bibliographic records. ASCC selected Koha not only due to a desire for an open-source
solution, but also because member libraries wanted a flexible,
member-driven system instead of one controlled by commercial vendors. ASCC has been given a unique opportunity to serve as a model project to
other libraries and consortia in the state of Colorado. Technology has
made great strides in the industry and librarians have been in the
forefront of this industry.

About Koha ZOOM : - Koha ZOOM is the next-generation release of the award-winning Koha
open-source integrated library system. Notably, it includes a powerful
search engine based on Zebra, a high-performance indexing and retrieval
engine. Koha ZOOM's search engine can read structured records in
practically any input format (e.g., email, XML, MARC) and allows access
to them through exact boolean search expressions and relevance-ranked
free-text queries. It supports large databases (more than ten gigabytes
of data, tens of millions of records) as well as incremental, safe
database updates on live systems.
About LibLime : - LibLime is the global leader in open-source solutions for libraries,
with a mission to make open source accessible to libraries. LibLime has migrated over 500 libraries worldwide to Koha
ILS. Rather than
sell software licenses for static, hard-to-customize software products,
LibLime educates libraries about the benefits of open source, enabling
them to make choices about how best to provide their communities and
staff with better technology services. LibLime then facilitates
implementation of open-source in libraries by providing outstanding
development, customization, support and training solutions--solutions
tailored to each library's needs.
