North Bethesda, MD, February 20, 2013- LibLime, a division of PTFS, announces Fort Scott Public Library has joined the SEKnFind union catalog and is live on the system.
Fort Scott Public Library is a member of the Southeast Kansas Library System (SEKLS). SEKLS serves member libraries in over 60 communities in Southeast Kansas and several of those members participate in the SEKnFind union catalog.
The SEKnFind union catalog has over 423,000 bibliographic records and over 698,000 items records. Since 2008, LibLime has worked closely with SEKLS to migrate its member libraries to the union catalog. SEKnFind membership continues to grow as the Consortium is working with many more Southeast Kansas libraries.
During the Civil War, Fort Scott, Kansas was a key city for the U.S. military as it served as the U.S. Army district headquarters, training center, and recruitment station. Following the Civil War, Fort Scott became a premiere city of the frontier and one of the largest cities in eastern Kansas. Following strong population growth, industrialist Andrew Carnegie donated $18,000 to Fort Scott to fund the Fort Scott Public Library. Construction began in 1901 and continued until 1904. In 1987, the Public Library was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
LibLime – PTFS is the global leader in providing support for the Koha open source ILS. Rather than sell software licenses for static, hard-to-customize software products, the PTFS LibLime Division educates libraries about the benefits of open source, enabling them to make choices about how best to provide their communities and staff with better technology services. The PTFS LibLime Division then facilitates deployment of Koha in libraries by providing outstanding consulting, development, implementation, and support/hosting for libraries of all types and sizes. PTFS is also the developer of the world's leading content management software, ArchivalWare, and specializes in meeting library personnel staffing requirements, digitization, and metadata keying services.
