Kuali OLE 0.8 adds the following features/functions, building on the infrastructure provided in previous releases.

  • The Deliver module incorporates basic circulation features/functions: defining policies; importing and creating patron records; performing checkout and checkin; placing and managing requests (recalls, holds, paging, and copying); and generating and delivering notices and bills.
  • The Describe and Manage module offers enhanced searching features, the ability to create/modify/delete records (bibliographic, holdings, and items), to transfer holdings and item records, bound-with functionality, and MARC record ingest.   Also included in this release is the new Describe Workbench portal designed to provide improved workflow process support for cataloging staff.
  • One of the notable developments for Select and Acquire module for 0.8 is the development of workflow support for the license negotiation process (the License Request).   See the OLE Guide to Licensing listed in the Driver’s Manual  Other developments worth noting are the integration of order information into the “OLE instance” record which houses holdings and item information, the improvements in receiving items specifically multi-part orders and an enhanced import process of EDI files. Major additions to Acquisition functionality will be coming soon in the 1.0 release.
