Koha in the Classroom

LibLime is providing supported hosted Koha software to LIS programs. Now the students can get in there and see how searches change if 505t is added to the title index. What is the effect of indexing series fields in title searches? This kind of hands on experience is invaluable.

They can get the MIT catalog to use as a catalog, just have to convert the MARCXML to MARC. Then convert the MARCXML version of the LC authority files, to have a nice test environment.

Or even better, tweak the import scripts to take MARC-XML or MARC .. actually should be a 2 or 3 line change :)
