QC Public Libraries now online!

The Quezon City Public Library is now online. The move was made from the problems encountered on the installation of the PhpMyLibrary into their libraries. The libraries are experiencing windows virus problems and hardware malfunctions with which the blame has been always directed to the software.

To solve this problem, given that they have an individual internet connection we activated their online web sites so that the PhpMyLibrary software will not be anymore subjected to the said computer problems. The eleven (11) public schools libraries now have their own website powered by postnuke ( content management system and phpmylibrary ( automation software. ... read more

Make book &amp; card catalog in PDF format using pyCatalog

pyCatalog is a Python, MySQL, wxPython, Reportlab application specifically usable in library and information centers. It simply produces book catalog and card catalog in pdf format rendered using reportlab. The program takes MARC file as its source data. Catalog output is one of the core output needed in library software today. Because open source system for libraries as of this date didn't have this kind of feature as most other proprietary library software have today. This includes Koha, Obiblio, and PhpMyLibrary. By making this generalized solution, those open source system for libraries mentioned will be able to take advantage from this application because the software is not centered on one library system. The application simply needs a MARC file in order to output the desired book and card catalog. ... read more

Local Mailing List

For those interested please subscribe to our local mailing list created by Alex Sea in the Philippines. It can be accessed at

Created using my current favorite programming language Python. Before I was a cryptic PHP programmer, now I do both, PHP and Python. Python has some sort of extraordinary advantage over other programming language. Just SEA it for yourself. Watch Finding Nemo first. ... read more

CVS update - preparation for next release

We've noticed that the CVS version is lagging behind, so here it goes... I've done a major CVS update in preparation for the next version of PhpMyLibrary. Among the most noticeable changes are:

1. It doesn't work - the WebPAC search functionality doesn't return anything but errors. There's still a lot to fix in this department, as the underlying database structure has been changed.
2. Directory structure has been changed. You'll notice the difference :-)
3. Database structure has been changed.
4. Creation of "python" and "zope" modules separate from the "PhpMyLibrary" module. We're hoping to have them populated soon enough (as we've been very busy with other projects these days).... read more
