Open Source ILS Market Penetration

In the October 15th issue of LISNews, Bob Molyneux reviews the extent of open source ILS market penetration in U.S. libraries and elsewhere. In particular, he looks at the adoption of Koha and Evergreen, based on data gathered from Marshal Breeding's lib-web-cats (library websites and catalogs) database. A growing number of public libraries have adopted open source ILSs. So far 4 academic U.S. libraries are using Koha (e.g., Galen College of Nursing); none is using Evergreen. In Canada, Laurentian University is in the process of migrating to Evergreen.
