IT Manager's Journal:
Court library AMPs up
December 28, 2005 @ 07:26:56

Via this new post from LinuxLibrarian.org today, there's a pointer to this new article on the IT Manager's Journal site about the Supreme Court Library of North Carolina's move to an Apache/MySQL/PHP combination.

Until last year, [Ronald] Diener's organization was paying thousand of dollars a year to a library software vendor, but the vendor's services had become inadequate for the task. The court's IT team determined that they could develop a better, cost-effective in-house solution that would at the same time be open to participation from outside.

The open source option available through Apache, MySQL, and PHP (AMP) would serve as a resource to collaborate with other organizations and libraries, even internationally, in creating a continually upgradeable software portfolio. This solution would both cut costs and enhance the value of what could be offered to their own clients and a larger audience of legal professionals.

They do mention the comment made about finding documentation on implementing an AMP setup, but other than that, they seem happy overall with the system - plus it's already saving them money.
