Paul Poulain was up next to talk about Koha and Coral and why/how we should link them.
To handle electronic subscriptions in Koha we have 2 options, we can either add a module to Koha. Or we can find an existing FOSS project and integrate it. Coral is an existing FOSS one, so integrating is a good choice.
There are 4 modules in Coral
- Vendors, aggregators etc
- Define licenses
- Enter licenses
- Import/export licenses
This is where you define your resources, linking them to organisations and licenses
Because Koha and Coral are both web resources there are a few ways we can link them together. They are aiming for middle of 2017 for it to be ready.
