KOHA


"Koha is the first free and open source software library automation package (ILS). Development is sponsored by libraries of varying types and sizes, volunteers, and support companies from around the world." (from the koha community website)

Koha Resources
  • The koha community website "is committed to collaboration between all members of the koha Community" and includes documentation, a faq, demo links, and a newsletter.
  • Wikipedia article on koha
  • ByWater Solutions offers support services for koha, and Nicole Engard, the documentation guru for koha (my description, not hers) works for them. There are lots of demo links on their site, as well as video tutorials.
  • LibLime, a division of PTFS, has their own "flavor' of koha and maintains the koha.org website. This has generated a lot of controversy in the koha community.
Koha in New Hampshire

Several New Hampshire libraries have implemented koha systems. Check out their catalogs to see what they have done. If your NH library is using koha please email me your catalog link and I will add you to the list.
