The new version has been released. The file can be downloaded PhpMyLibrary-1.0.4b here!.This is a version that have a Holdings and Cataloging Modules Added. The recent module only consisted of WebPAC module and Record Import module, now you can make your own catalog entry, put an accession to it, and you're done. Your new book or material are ready for browsing online.
All instruction and notes are included in polerio/docs directory, please do browse and read this before installing all the source in your website.
Be noted that this version recognizes the current logged in user. If it found to be the adminstrators id the PhpMyLibrary will be active for the administration of the Cataloging, Holdings, and Record Import module.
Basically, the Cataloging Module generates a MARC data. This MARC data is being save in MARC table. The keywords needed, author, title, notes, subject and publisher are being extracted from the said MARC and this keywords are indexed so that the searching methods do not scan all the MARC contents. This assures you the searchability of the bibliographic information you cataloged.
In addition the Cataloging Module has a Holdings Module that makes you add, delete or edit Holdings information like Accession numbers, Location Codes, the Level of that specific book or material whether it be Circulation book, Reserved book, etc. In addition you can also found in Holdings Module the status of the specific material, whether it be on loan, available or renewed.
Fortunately the Cataloging module also has a level approved, and category customization. Category customization means that you can categorize the material in book, maps, etc. Approved/Disapproved makes your material available for searching or not. Approved means, well cataloged, Disapprove means, still on cataloging stage and not yet available for searching.
Be reminded that you can now export your ISIS files into this version 1.0.4b, just look for the Import Record module to browse the PhpMyLibrary capability in importing ISIS files. Please do read first the instructions found on polerio/docs directory. Ignoring this would make your imported ISIS searchable to none. Be free to browse the PhpMyLibrary demo to do some practice.
Thank you for using PhpMyLibrary-1.0.4b
