SEKLS has chosen Koha as the integrated library system (ILS) for the automation/ILS consortium. Koha is an open source product, and we will contract with the company Liblime to host and administer the ILS for us. Information on membership in the consortium and the costs are below.
Annual Membership FeeFor other libraries:
- Basic cost of $2,560Also, 12˘ per record to migrate your current database (if you are automated) if done with the initial group, and 15˘ per record thereafter. However, SEKLS will pay the first $1000 in data migration costs. The $2,560 will remain the same for joining at any time within our 5-year contract with Liblime. It may be possible to obtain additional LSTA grant funds to offset part of these costs, but this LSTA grant is only available for public libraries. SEKLS must apply for the LSTA grant on behalf of your library.
