Each Friday, we will bring you a new Koha Question of the Week. We will select real questions that we receive and share the answers with you!
Question: What eContent Integrations are Available?
Koha can connect with various vendors to show eContent within the Koha OPAC.
Three vendors, OverDrive, Hoopla and Cloud Library, have direct access to show real time results in the OPAC.
Other vendor records can be loaded in the Koha staff client using the State MARC record for Import feature.
OverDrive is integrated within Koha, patrons can search for OverDrive records in your Koha catalog, place OverDrive records on hold and check out OverDrive records right from within Koha. Read more here.
Hoopla and Koha integrations allows the library to have results within the OPAC at the top of the search or if the library loads their Hoopla records, these will be shown right along with your other records. Read more here.
Cloud Library with Bibliotheca will allow users to checkout, check-in, search for titles and place holds on their items directly through the Koha OPAC. Read more here.
