I'm from a small bilingual (German-Ukrainian) public library in Vienna/Austria. The library was established just a couple of months ago and it's been my task to find a suitable ILS. Obviously, I went for Koha. :-) The main reason being the support of Unicode and the costs.
I have installed Koha 3.6.3 for testing. And after playing around a bit, some questions came up.
* when cataloguing using Cyrillic alphabet, we would like to automatically generate corresponding 880 fields with transcribed/transliterated data. And thus ensure the correct linkage, reference counts, transcription and so on. Is there a way of doing this?
* I've noticed that when I search authority records that have 880 fields, these fields are not being searched. How can I change this behavior?
* will the unicode label printing problem be solved in the upcoming version of Koha (Bug 2246)?
I hope these questions are not trivial and I haven't overlooked those points in the documentation.
ps: Koha is really impressive! Thanks to everyone who's been working on this project.
