Introduction to Koha
What other Open and free tools do you use in your library? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also let us know if we can list you as a contact for other libraries who have questions.
Time to get excited for this event! What’s all the hoopla? Well, it’s actually Hoopla! Today George walks us through the setup and use of the Hoopla plugin in Koha. And as an added bonus, he shows off how to enhance the Hoopla results so they stand out. So, make a big racket. Otherwise, you’ll just look silly standing (or sitting) there during this Hoopla.
Koha jQuery Hackdown: Cataloging Labels vs Automatic Library Setting
It was bound to happen. Not just one, but TWO great hacks in today’s video. George and Christopher go head-to-head with a couple short, but helpful hacks in this week’s special Koha Hackdown episode. Which hack is more helpful? You decide.
jQuery: Handling Bad E-mails
There is just no getting around it. Bad e-mails exist. And we all have to deal with them in our own way. Christopher shows how he takes care of these nasty buggers in an efficient way. And George plots to use this idea for his own nefarious purpose. What will he do?
Q&A: Following Up on Episodes 15 & 17
Someone had a question, and guess what! We had an answer! Not only that, we had two! Join us as we go over 2 past episodes and provide some new content for one of our past hacks and a WordPress plugin we featured recently. There is always something new to learn with The Terrific Ever-Other-Thursday Training Videos.
jQuery: Quick Permissions
We give you permission to ooh and aah over this gem of jQuery. We’ll show you how to setup quick permission buttons in your user permissions, so you don’t have to scramble, trying to remember the same settings you’ve set for every other staff member. And as an added bonus, a button to copy permissions from one user to another, just to make it that much more exciting and spectacular. Are you drooling yet?
Library Bookshelves: A WordPress Plugin
This week we escape from the norm, and look at a WordPress plugin to display book covers based on reports from Koha. And our video editing is slightly improved as well. But don’t let that distract you from this awesome plugin.
Notices & Slips: Template Toolkit
This week we welcome our very first special guest, the awesome Lisette Scheer! Lisette will be dazzling us with her wicked skills in Template Toolkit, making notices and slips better for the entire world. She will also bring an extra sparkle to the usual witty banter.
jQuery & CSS: Placards
It’s time to boldly go where no man has gone before – or at least no Koha OPAC has gone before. Join us this week as we explore strange, new worlds with our hosts while they show you how to add placards (information panels) to OPAC search results for items outside of your normal collection. This is an episode that even Jean Luc Picard would be proud of. (Or is that Jean Luc Placard?)
jQuery & CSS: Enhanced Suspended Hold Listings
Holy enhanced features, Batman! This is the feature you’ve all been waiting for. No more delays! This week, Christopher shows of a brand new tweak that will really make those suspended holds stand out, and even shed some light on future holds.
jQuery: Enhanced Search Facets
Hold on to your facets, because you ain’t seen nothing yet! This week Christopher takes the helm as he navigates viewers through the bizarre world of search facets. One could almost say it’s “facet”-nating!
SQL: The Dashboard Finale
You’ve watched the life-sucking training videos that led you step-by-step through each detail of George’s twisted mind. Now watch the video that brings it all together in a slow, unrelenting madness as you take control of Koha and become the master of SQL and item records. (Maniacal laughing inserted here.)
In this exciting, action-packed episode, George goes in for an extraction – of subtitles in Marc records. Will he get them out in one piece? Watch, and find out!
In order to form a more perfect union… you need to watch this video! We’ll go over how to show the results of multiple queries in a single report.
You can’t get something out of nothing – unless perhaps you understand the essence of coalesce, more or less. This is good stuff.
