Topic: Koha 3.2 presentation
Once again the Horowhenua Library Trust is at the forefront of technology with the introduction of Koha 3.2 library managment system and a wonderful new OPAC for our borrowers to interact with. The presentation of the new library system was held at the Horowhenua District Council chambers in Levin on Thursday 27th May 2010.
It is with a sense of pride that Horowhenua Library Trust launched its new
Koha library management system late last week, the public face of which is
the new website: <http://www.library.org.nz/>
The new site is built on the Koha 3.2 Alpha2 release and the work was led by
Chris Cormack from Catalyst IT <http://www.catalyst.net.nz/>. The site
features the work of Wendy
renowned children's book illustrator and muralist. The site development was
carried out by the team at Katipo <http://katipo.co.nz/> Communications and
incorporates digital content from a Library Trust Kete <http://kete.net.nz/>,
an open source digital library application developed by Walter McGinnis at
Katipo for the Library Trust.
Koha is an open source library management system originally developed by
Horowhenua Library Trust in New Zealand in 1999. The Trust would like to
acknowledge and thank the many libraries and developers from around the
world who have contributed to Koha 3.2.
