Almost all software we use is open source: Koha, DSpace, OJS, OCS, Drupal, simplesamlphp, etc. and we are promoting use of Open Source among Georgian libraries. (Library type: Special; collection size: very small; ils satisfaction: 8)

Our Koha installation is self-supported, so in our case the "vendor" is the Koha community, koha-US in particular. (Library type: Medical; collection size: small; ils satisfaction: 9)

Due to institutional circumstances not related to COVID-19, our library is mostly inactive. We self-installed our open-source ILS and are not working with any support vendors.

However, I am not interested in implementing any other open source ILS. I am a big supporter of Open Source and as Koha was developed here in the Horowhenua to meet our specific ILS needs before it went worldwide, we are not looking to change our system any time soon. (Library type: Public; collection size: medium; ils satisfaction: 9)

we have been using the open source system koha for almost 10 years and we are extremely satisfied. Implementation and ongoing operation are without external service providers, but with great support from the Koha community We ar (Library type: Special; collection size: very small; ils satisfaction: 9)

Currently we are working with Koha ILS, and we are interesting in using an open source Discovery, like Vufind. (Library type: Academic; collection size: large; ils satisfaction: 8)
