The Winnefox Library System, a consortium of 29 public libraries, is
looking to hire a short-term VuFind consultant who can take a first pass
at our VuFind installation and get some basic features working against a
SirsyDynix Symphony 3.4 ILS. We have installed VuFind 1.1 and have made
some customizations, but progress has been slow. We would like to have
the work done before mid October.
At this point, we are not looking for theme customization or
branding--we just want something functional enough to compare with
products such as Bibliocommons or SirsiDynix's Enterprise. If, after
comparing with other products, we decide on VuFind, we would be looking
to contract for additional work.
The functions we specifically need help with are:
1) Holds--place a title level hold, including the ability to choose a
different pickup library.
2) Holdings Display--in the format:
Location w/in library -- Call number -- Status -- Due Date
In SirsiDynix terms that translates into:
Library Policy Description
Home Location Description - Call number - Current Location
Description - Due date
3) My Account -- display current checkouts (maybe even w/option to
renew?), display holds (maybe even with ability to change pickup
library, and/or suspend hold?), display fines.
If you are interested in this project, please contact me off list with
an estimate of the time needed to develop this functionality, and your
