BIBFRAME Conference

by Joy Nelson
The Koha Gruppo Italiano hosted a conference on March 15-16, 2016 titled “Beyond MARC: A discussion about Koha, MarcEdit and BIBFRAME”.

Program speakers included:

  • Joy Nelson, Director of Migrations, ByWater Solutions
  • Terry Reese, Digital Initiatives, Ohio State University
  • Eric Lease Morgan, Digital Initiatives Librarian, Notre Dame University

The concepts of Web 3.0 (Semantic Web), Linked Data and BIBFRAME were explored and how these new ways of describing our library data have the potential to revolutionize how we view and maintain our collections. Semantic Web and Linked Data is a way for us to expose our library data (MARC) on the web and connect our data to other related pieces of information in our collection and even other collections. Utilizing BIBFRAME (or another linked data ontology) we can more accurately describe the implicit and sometimes hidden data within our MARC records. It is a radical change to the way in which we think about ‘cataloging’ and is more accurately described as ‘catalinking’!

Global Bug Squashing Day (GBSD) was Thursday, March 24th 2016.

Koha to the rescue at Mapua Community Library

From Kathryn Tyree
Beautiful Mapua, near Nelson in New Zealand’s South Island, boasts its own community library. Entirely funded by grants and fundraising, this busy community service is staffed by a 30-strong force of dedicated volunteers.

The library had been running an older version of Koha Library Management System on an in-house server with no problems for years, until disaster struck. The server gave up completely, leaving the library without a library system and worries they had lost all data.

Anne Thompson, Library Coordinator, got in touch with Catalyst to let us know the situation, and we went straight to work getting the system restored.

Within a day, we had recovered the library’s data from a backup, and soon had them on the latest version of Koha running in the Catalyst Cloud. This means we handle all the server maintenance, while the library gets on with business.

As they’re now running a newer version of Koha on faster servers, library volunteers have noted with pleasure the system’s faster running speed, and mobile-responsive capability.

The library soared through the upgrade, and are getting on with business as usual, Mapua style. Anne says, “We have had no issues with the new version of Koha… we are lucky to in such a beautiful part of New Zealand and welcome anyone who wants to pop in and visit. Holidaymakers are welcome to become temporary members.”

New Koha Libraries

Community Gossip Forthcoming article, “The Kansas Story: A Sea of Koha Green on the Plains”

From Heather Braum
Staff at the Central Kansas Library System, Northeast Kansas Library System, and Southeast Kansas Library System will have an article published in the OCLC Systems & Services: International digital library perspectives journal in late 2016. The article is on how our regional library systems each chose Koha and built consortia catalogs since 2007, the challenges we faced, how we’ve collaborated together, and more. Thanks to publication terms, we were able to put the preprint version of the article in an online repository, and it has been posted to the E-LIS repository, here: http://eprints.rclis.org/28918/. The article is titled, “The Kansas Story: A Sea of Koha Green on the Plains“.

Beyond MARC – Koha, MarcEdit and BIBFRAME: March 15th and 16th

by Stefano Bargioni
We would like to invite you to “Beyond MARC, a discussion about Koha, MarcEdit and BIBFRAME” [1].

“Beyond MARC” is a two day conference that examines the evolution of how ILSs are impacted by linked data, RDA and the BIBFRAME project. Cataloguing concepts are moving beyond viewing a resource as a physical entity to viewing them as links between the object, titles, authors, subjects. Methods and tools will require a revision of the MARC format and an evolution of the latter toward a new logic to allow cultural institutions such as libraries, archives and museums to match and link their data with data available on the web, thus contributing to the semantic web. Open source ILSs like Koha and tools like MarcEdit can make a significant contribution to this evolution. The conference includes one day of discussion and analysis and one day of practical training in MarcEdit and BIBFRAME. The conference further marks the upcoming release of the new Koha with Elasticsearch as its new search engine. This conference is promoted by Koha Gruppo Italiano for the international Koha community.

The event is free of charge. You can register to the event through [2] or by e-mail to f.wallner@aur.edu.

Koha in Turkey

by Mengü Yazicioğlu
I’m glad to share that we successfully migrated old 2.x Koha to new one, 3.20. I should also say that this a quite derived version of 3.20, we have added many new features,
new modules and changed a lot of codes for the use of public libraries so we may call this Koha version as Koha — Devinim.

We’ve migrated 1,220,000 active users, 13,700,000 items with active 900 libraries of 1126 public libraries all cities of Turkey. We use 14 servers for all production and 4 servers for test environment. We use MariaDB and Galera Cluster with 4 nodes, 8 apache servers and 1 zebra server. We plan to cluster zebra server in the future, it cannot perform very well for this kind of huge installation.

During migration, we also cleaned some dirty data, this was also a big issue for 13m items. We’ve done many tests before going live.
