New Feature Poll Suggestions

We want to thank all LibraryWorld members who submitted feature requests in the last few weeks. We have received several hundred entries. Thank you!

Many were small features or enhancements of current features.  They will all go into the process for future development opportunities.  A few were even implemented in the last week.

The major feature suggestions are now being organized for the formal poll.  Some of the feature requests include: spell checking or suggestions for searching, enhanced advanced Boolean search in Manage (similar to OPAC), a Z39.50 server to allow other systems to search your library collection, using that standard, more powerful and flexible reports, enhanced catalog editing, inventory and circulation using mobile devices, placing reserves and holds using patron names and titles, a dedicated self-check out service, acquisition module,
enhanced serials module, and ebook lending.

The formal poll will be limited to several dozen main features and members will be asked to pick their top five feature requests.  We'll announce the top features and put them into our development cycle.  This doesn't mean other feature suggestions will not be worked on.  On the contrary, many features may already be in the pipeline,
or easy enough to implement shortly.

We at LibraryWorld are looking forward to an exciting 2014 and the opportunity to continue to bring you a friendly, easy to use online integrated library service that is both powerful and affordable.
