Welcome in August BibLibre’s newsletter. This month our introduction is about Coral, an Open Source software we just had to our catalog.
Coral is an Open Source ERMS (Electronic Resource Management System) built by the University of Notre Dame’s Hesburgh Libraries. Coral was created to manage your subscriptions to electronic ressources. You can manage the underwriting process to these subscriptions, licenses of usage, prices and store contracts in one place. Coral also provides the ability to recover SUSHI files of each subscription to analyze the use of each bouquet. You are thus able to determine the value of each subscription among those which you have subscribed.
While many academic libraries use a simple Excel file, Lyon 1 decided to use Coral and develop 5 new features on the software to be closer to their needs. BibLibre will be deal with the installation and development of these modules. As always, we will submit to the Coral community the developments made. We received a warm welcoming and we aim to become a major player in the development of Coral.
