MarcEdit Direct ILS Integration Setup [Koha Example]

By reeset / On / In Uncategorized

One of the things I have been working on is a framework for supporting the ability to configure MarcEdit to support the direct integration with one’s ILS system.  Many ILS systems like Sierra, Alma, Koha, and others support (or will support) APIs that allow for the modification and creation of bibliographic.  I’ve developed a framework in MarcEdit that should allow me to provide integration options for most systems (so long as documentation is available), and as a proof of concept, I’ve provided integration with Koha.  Koha has an easy to use set of API that make updating and creating new bibliographic records on the system fairly easy.  The attached video demonstrates how one will be able to configure MarcEdit to utilize this new functionality once it becomes available (around Dec. 1st-ish, 2012).
