The Bloomsbury Library Management System consortium has made a decision in principle to develop its 21st Century LMS using Kuali OLE open source software as a platform.
Extensive options analysis and specification work over summer 2012 have indicated that an open source solution will offer the most flexible and future-proof direction to deliver the visionary shared service.
Strategically, Kuali OLE fully supports the direction and goals of the consortium members whilst also providing best value for money in terms of project and recurrent costs.
Technologically, the roadmap for Kuali OLE and the underlying enterprise technology, is delivering a truly next generation system.
Detailed planning and specification work will continue during the remainder of 2012. The programme of development work will continue during 2013, with a pilot service targeted to go live in late 2013.
