I think it is currently the best option for distribution manuscripts through Internet so oss4lib readers might be interested." Saw a presentation on this at MIT a while back, it's nice stuff and having gpl'd commandline tools is a major boon. Interesting that there are only *nix builds available at present.

From their site: 'Our project goal is to create web-based library automation application that will handle all transaction online. PhpMyLibrary is a PHP MySQL Library automation application. The program consist of cataloging, circulation, and the webpac module. The programs also has an import export feature. The program strictly follow the USMARC standard for adding materials." Note the distinction, it's not another "my library" despite the name.
