Press Release: PTFS Europe [November 25, 2019]

The London School of Theology enjoyed a smooth and effective implementation of their new Koha open source library management system.

London, 25 November 2019. London School of Theology has chosen Koha as its new library management system to replace the previous Capita solution and the team at PTFS Europe has implemented the new system and is providing on-going hosting and support services. Koha will efficiently manage the library's valuable collections and deliver an improved service to its users. The library particularly valued the project focus provided by PTFS Europe, the efficiency of the implementation and the capabilities of the new open source solution.

Koha Library Management System

The Koha library management system is a completely web-based application providing staff and public users with access to the system through web browsers. The system comprises core modules: acquisitions with EDI, circulation, cataloguing, serials and comprehensive reporting functionality. The Koha online catalogue (OPAC) offers end users excellent search capabilities together with a full range of personalisation services. Koha's depth of functionality continues to develop to meet the changing needs of libraries and their users.

Keith Lang, Librarian, said "I want to say thank you very much to all at PTFS Europe. The team worked diligently on our behalf and kept real focus on our implementation even among all the other projects and duties they must have going on at the same time.

"I have been most impressed with the team's diligence, professionalism and capabilities that have been applied to each problem and matter as it has come along. It has been a most positive experience and I am very glad to have chosen PTFS Europe to provide, setup and host our new library management system."
