Hi again,

After reading through some of the Koha documentation, it seems more for large scale libraries. Would this software be suitable for a library as small as 250-500 items? The software would need to be installed on the personal computer of someone with a non library background.

Thank you

Hi there,

I am investigating database/possibilities for a small belly dance collection of about 250-500 items which rents out material to continue to build the collection and wanted to confirm if one can use koha to create monthly reports such as:

revenue generated
overdue items with patron contact information
shelf lists to export to patrons (I know regular libraries do not normally provide this to patrons, but since this is a small library...)
number of checkouts by material type
top checkouts for the month by title

I was considering creating an MS Access database, but thought I would look into what is already out there first, for library software. I gather that since you have all the different modules that a regular library has, this would be possible. Am I correct?

Any help is appreciated.
