With another month elapsed, a new version of RERO ILS is available on the test interface. The work of the development team to improve the software continues with a new update that should be of interest to cataloguing professionals. Comprehensive release notes can be found on the project’s Github page :
Professional interface: refining the document editor
As it is one of the librarians' main tools, particularly for cataloguing, the document editor must offer a clear and ergonomic interface, especially as this module must frequently display complex data according to rules that are not always obvious.
Work on fine-tuning this interface is constant and is evidenced in this version by an improvement in its readability.
This visual enhancement is accompanied by several adjustments:
- New fields
seriesStatement(collection statement) and
issuance(publishing mode) have been added. They allow the system to establish clean links between documents, a small revolution within the network where these links were previously based solely on character strings.
- The display of some translations has been fixed, especially in the Add Field form. Please note that not all translations are up to date in this version due to a change of translation platform in progress. These problems will be corrected in the next version.
- Bugs in saving the documents have been fixed.
- The shortcut links Go to in the right panel are now working.
Inventory lists are another new feature of the
v0.11.0. Available in the professional interface through the Reports & monitoring menu, they can display item lists, filter them and export them directly in
At the same time, the items also have a new
second_call_number field allowing them to have a second call number, which is also displayed in the inventory lists.
