How LTFL Works

What do you get as a LTFL member?
LTFL offers two enhancement packages (Catalog and Reviews) with different installations. The Reviews package came out more recently at the end of 2008.

LTFL Configuration involves two parts
PART 1. THINGS DONE ONCE (get an account, read installation wiki page for your ILS, turn on/configure 2.0 features in LTFL, add small amount of code to your catalog/html page).

PART 2. PERIODICALLY UPLOAD RECORDS TO LTFL & CHECK STATS. To maintain the features in your catalog, you'll need to periodically export catalog records with a 10 or 13 ISBN from your ILS and upload them as a batch (text files) to your LTFL results.
