  • Does anyone know if it's possible to use a single instance of OpenBiblio to support multiple libraries (i.e. using a single union database)?

      I'm working on a patch to allow this.  If you're interested you can check it out at http://pbowers.homelinux.com.  Drop me a line at obbranch.z.pbowers AT spamgourmet DOT com and I'll get you a username/password as well as the actual patch if you're interested.

      Note if you search for "copies location" in the features forum you will see that antoniopaez (sp?) has also done a similar feature but with probably much more capabilities.  The difference is mine is English-based and so doesn't require back-translating and mine is 0.6.1-based rather than 0.5.2.  Neither of those issues are "show-stoppers" and so Antonio's work is well worth looking into based on his description.
