I am grateful to be selected for the mission of migrating data from E-Granthalaya library software to Koha ILS at Vaidyaratnam P.S. Varier Ayurveda College Library, Kottakkal, Malappuram, Kerala. Above 24861+ collections with patron data and images were successfully migrated, merging unique bibliographic records, adding bulk punctuation mark, custom fields from the available fields etc. More than 8 days were taken for the back-end as well as for the implementation work. Both Mrs. Deepa K (Chief Librarian) and Mrs. Sindhu (Assistant Librarian) mesdames were so co-operative and available accordingly even during this pandemic. I am also thankful to the entire management for preferring me for the project.
The following were also done along with Koha
- In-out Management System
- Email Configuration for sending notifications to patrons
- Automatic database backup and sync to cloud storage
- Implemented DSpace digital repository for the conservation of old text
