Secure your digital content with NGL Open Source

December 17, 2013

Respected Patron:

Greetings from NGL Open Source

NGL introduces the all new security system for your valuable digital content. With this you can build a secured digital library easily.

How does it work?

User Groups: Create user groups with a combination of one or more User Categories, Departments, Courses, and Specific user ids.

Document categories: Create document categories like Preview, Table of Content, Full Text or Miscellaneous

Quick permissions: Create a permission with a combination of User groups and document categories. This step is optional.

Finally assign permissions: In Primary Cataloguing Screen (as well as edit) you can just apply permissions to your entire catalogue record(applies to all digital attachments of that catalogue record) or apply permissions to specific digital attachment.

“Open Access” and “Access to all logged in users” category: Apart from above permission you can also use quick categories like “Open Access” and “Access to all logged in users”. Open Access gives access to all users even if they are not logged in. “Access to all logged in users” provides access to those users who are logged into the NGL Opac.

Which version of NGL supports this feature?

Version 3.0.4 R2 U2 onwards supports this feature.

Bring NGL to your City

December 10, 2013

Respected Patron:

Greetings from NGL Open Source

NGL Open Source Team is happy to bring library automation to your Town/City/District through Group Adaptation Program. Through this program NGL Open Source Team will come to  your District to help you implement NGL Open Source.

If you are a group of librarians in the same district who want to automate your library. Then this program is just for you.

How does Group Adaptation Program Work?

Step 1: Form a group of librarians. There must be a minimum 20 organizations and maximum 40 participants.

Step 2: NGL Open Source Team will install NGL at all the 20 organizations online. Team will also install the migrated data

Step 3: A resource person will travel to your district and conduct a centralized training program for the whole group. The resource person will conduct a detailed training program for 3 days (can be extended for another 2 days).

Step 4: NGL Open Source Team will provide a hand holding period for 3 months till the librarians are comfortable in using the system

 

How much does it cost?

NGL Open Source charges only 25 USD (INR 1,000) per organization(NOT per participant). This is the cost of resource person for training only. We do not charge for rest of the activities. If the organization pays another 12 USD (Rs 500), the organization gets free commercial support for one year. However this is optional. Organizations that are not paying the additional 12 USD (Rs 500) will always get Free Open Source Support.

Additional costs: The travel expenses of resource person and local hospitality must be born by the group

Important Requirement: Host organization

The host organization is the organization where the training program is conducted.

The host organization must provide a computer lab for training of the group. The host organization may charge the group for this facility.

Additionally host organization may provide and charge the group for local hospitality.

Certificates provided

NGL Open Source Team will issue official NGL Training certificates to all the participants. NGL Open Source Team will also issue official One Year Support agreements with organizations opting for commercial support by paying additional 12 USD (Rs 500).
