Anonymous access

    I'm asked to check out various library systems for a non-profit organization and so far, OpenBiblio seems pretty well suited. (very easy to install and low on dependencies unlike its competitors Koha and Open-ILS which are a maintenance nightmare)

    The non-profit organization would like to use it to on their public website to give users information on books on the subject, flyers etc meaning that the search functionality must be accessible without people having to log in.

    I've tried to look in the documentation (which is pretty lacking to be honest) but haven't found anything in this subject. Is this feature, simple bypassers searching for books on particular subjects possible?

      Shot this one off way too soon as I didn't fully understand the OPAC part yet *grumble*
      I've found the link giving access to public access.

        Your question is frequently asked.

        Perhaps the OpenBiblio Help page about the OPAC ( /locale/en/help/opac.php) should explain how to access the OPAC.

        There is a solution for lacking documentation: the OpenBiblio community can contribute to the Documentation section on the homepage (anonymous access!).

        There is also a Gallery section, for adding yours to the list of sites using OpenBiblio.

        Good luck,
