Acquisition Module, RFID & MARC

Slims is now not a single library based or single country based Library Management Software(LMS). Now it is an international software. So it should have all the features of LMS. Now acquisition module is an integrated part of a LMS. So, I think, SLIMS must have acquisition module.
I also wish to have the features of RFID and MARC compatibility.

Thank You.

I want to echo nalamapu's request for MARC compatibility. SLIMS is very functional - full MARC compatibility would bring it international compatibility. MARC is complex ( too complex for me to grasp very well so far) so I expect it might take some time to build it into SLIMS, but the effort would be worthwhile, so that data can be readily exchanged. Keep up your great work!

well thank you @gurujim. at the moment, in the latest release SLiMS 5, it has the capability to import MARC data. it might not what you expected, but, indeed MARC is something that has become standard internationally. thank you for your comment.

and yes @annu, let's hope for the best :).

:) Yes I noticed you have MARC import now in SLIMS5. I will experiment with it soon using SCIS data and let you know of my experiences.

Pertanyaan yang belum terjawab: RFID apa yang paling compatible dengan SLiMS?

for RFID , i think SLIM must have SIP2 feature, so it would comply with RFID library system
