Open Source

The promise of Open Source is better quality, higher reliability, more flexibility, lower cost, and an end to vendor lock-in.

 

Open Source with the community ....

 

Say a friend stops by and asks to borrow a screwdriver.

 

You say sure. When she returns the screwdriver a couple days later, your friend mentions that she made an improvement: now it works with both Phillips and flat head screws. Another friend hears this and asks if he can take a look, too. When he returns the screwdriver, it's been upgraded again: now it's a power screwdriver. Then a third friend gets excited and adds some extra speeds and a better battery.

 

This situation sounds improbable, but it's how open source software development takes place.

 

On open source projects, programmers build tools to solve specific problems, then make those tools freely available so others can use them and contribute their own improvements. The communities of programmers that grow up around successful open source projects often produce tools that are more secure, flexible, and cost-effective than those produced by a team working in isolation.

 

The key is building a community.

Library Management System

Koha | Demo

 

Koha is the first and most widely used open source Library Management System and was originally developed in New Zealand for the Horowhenua Library Trust in 2000. Distributed under the General Public License.

 

We are listed as a support provider for Malaysia, Asia on Koha's website.

 

Digital Library

Dspace | Demo

 

DSpace is an open source digital repository; a software that supports the management of an organisation's digital assets. The first public version was released in November 2002, as a joint effort between developers from MIT and HP Labs.

 

It supports a wide variety of digital content, such as digitised books, articles, documents, graphics, photographs, audio, video or sets of experimental data. It is typically used as an institutional repository by organisations that create or hold a large number of digital assets such as universities, laboratories, libraries and archives.

 

 

EPrints | Demo

 

EPrints is a free and open-source software package for building open access repositories that are compliant with the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting. It shares many of the features commonly seen in document management systems, but is primarily used for institutional repositories and scientific journals. EPrints has been developed at the University of Southampton School of Electronics and Computer Science and released under a GPL license.

 

Discovery Layer

VuFind | Demo

 

VuFind is a library resource portal designed and developed for libraries by libraries. The goal of VuFind is to enable your users to search and browse through all of your library's resources by replacing the traditional OPAC to include:

 

* Catalog Records

* Locally Cached Journals

* Digital Library Items

* Institutional Repository

* Institutional Bibliography

* Other Library Collections and Resources

 

We are listed as a support provider for Malaysia/South East Asia on VuFind's website.
