The backend to koha is a mysql database.
(Theres no real reason it cant be any sql database)
So basically if you can convert a file to tab, or comma or some form of
delimited text, you can get it into koha.
Data also comes out in delimited text. So should go into anything that
accepts delimited text, easily enough.
Mysql and most sql databases support ODBC as well, so you can use an ODBC
interface to import/export database from koha. If you have that set up.
Hope this helps answer your question.
> Also, are there plans for SIF support?
Well, no immediate plans.
If someone was keen on reading up on the SIF specifications and writing a
module to export/import data in that form, that would be cool though.
Maybe as an adjunct to writing an XML module for Koha.
Any takers? :-)
