Delivering on its goal of providing an improved experience for staff, corporate members and course participants using the library and information service and providing a seamless login experience across all information resources, The IMI has chosen the Koha open source library management system to replace its existing EOS.web system. Interleaf Technology has been contracted to implement the Koha system and to provide on-going support services.
Koha Library Management System
With the Koha LMS, library staff access to the system is completely web-based: Searching, circulation, cataloguing, serials and reports, acquisitions and EDI are all performed using a web browser.
This implementation will use SAML-based protocols as a single sign on tool for system users.
The online catalogue offers an excellent search capability and a full range of personalisation service and is mobile-friendly using the bootstrap theme. Koha’s depth of functionality continues to evolve and expand to meet the changing needs of its user base.
Matthew Kelleher, Knowledge Manager at IMI said, “Partnering with Interleaf to deliver the Koha LMS has led to cost savings as well as an improved user experience. It was definitely the right choice for us.”
Charles Quain, Director at Interleaf Technology added: “We are delighted to be working with the IMI – one of Ireland’s most prestigious educational institutions. We are simultaneously increasing the resources and services available to the Institute’s staff, corporate members, and course participants while reducing the overhead to manage these resources.”
