Created in 2003 by French company PMB Services, this very complete ILS was chiefly designed for document resource centres and specialised libraries that do not require UNIMARC cataloguing.

PMB’s main functionalities include the cataloguing of all types of documents (text, multimedia, web, etc.) with file attachments, confidentiality by user category, thesaurus management, OPAC (user search interface), DSI (interest based displays), borrower management, management of periodicals and purchasing, OAI server and harvester, Z3950 Client, and RFID interfacing.
Its most noteworthy additions include full text indexing of attachments, an OCR service and an API for Drupal. Slated on its roadmap are the circulation of periodicals, improved order tracking and supplier follow-ups, suggested purchases for web surfers, and OPAC views dependent on the user.
PMB is distributed under the CeCILL License. It should be noted that, at the time of writing, it had no established network of partners.
PMB was developed around a LAMP/WAMP platform (Apache, PHP, MySQL, etc.) that can therefore run on Linux, Mac OS X or Microsoft Windows.

“ Apparemment INCOMPATIBLE avec PHP 7, fourni par défaut par Ubuntu depuis sa version 16.04. ATTENTION donc à ne pas mettre Ubuntu ou PHP à jour sur un serveur fonctionnel de PMB ! ”

“ Bonsoir je voudrai savoir s'il ya une version d'états personnalisable qui correspond à la version 4.1.4 de PMB pour avoir des statistiques et comment y accéder. Merci ”

“ PMB est un SIGB fantastique. On le trouve partout sur le web, avec des portails très différents, de simples OPAC à de véritables portails d'information sans nécessiter l'installation d'un CMS. Coté périmètre fonctionnel, il est le seul SIGB à disposer d'une GED, il permet les revues de presse, dispose de modules de veille, il est le seul SIGB à disposer d'un véritable géoréférencement (placement des items sur une carte). Il est 100% disponible sur une forge. ”
