North Bethesda, MD, October 31, 2013- The Valley Public Library, located in Valley, NE, has joined the Pioneer Consortium and will participate in the Pioneer LibLime union catalog for all collection and patron management services.
The Valley Public Library staff will work with LibLime Project Managers to migrate bibliographic, item, and patron data from its legacy ILS system. Valley Public Library will enjoy autonomy within the LibLime Koha union catalog, as LibLime Koha includes support for local ownership of patron records, local ownership of items records linked to communal bibliographic records, and OPAC group searching for pre-designated collections. Valley patrons will also benefit from other functionality in the software sponsored by Pioneer, such as Enriched EDI for acquisitions and expanded fines and fees support in circulation.
