PHP Utilities for Koha Integrated Library System

PHP Koha Utility Software

Created this set of utilities intended for use by library staff, extending functionality to the Koha Open Source Integrated Library System (ILS).

Due to time constraints, much of the work was done quickly, and these are reports more than mature PHP/MySQL applications.

Designed and implemented these utilities during 2007-2011. Everything is written in PHP/Javascript on top of MySQL.

The utilities include
A reserve pull list tool for open reserves and holds
A canceled reserve tool

Screen to perform patron lookup by internal Koha id code instead of barcode
