As part of a plan to deliver an improved experience for staff and students using the library and information service, Griffith College has chosen the Koha open source library management system to replace its existing Alice system. Interleaf Technology has been contracted to implement the Koha system, migrate the data and provide on-going support services.
Koha Library Management System
With the Koha LMS, library staff access to the system is completely web-based: Searching, circulation, cataloguing, serials and reports, acquisitions and EDI are all performed using a web browser.
The online catalogue offers an excellent search capability and a full range of personalisation services. Koha's depth of functionality continues to evolve and expand to meet the changing needs of its user base.
Robert McKenna, Head Librarian said: "Our move to Koha was painlessly managed by Interleaf and we are delighted with the upgrade in services to our users. Koha is an Open Source solution with a very active development community and is at the leading edge of integration of new technologies into LMSs. This future proofing was very important to us in our decision to move to Koha as was having local, knowledgeable, and experienced support."
Charles Quain, Director at Interleaf Technology added: "We are delighted that Griffith College has joined our family of over 100 libraries using Koha supported by Interleaf. We look forward to working with Griffith College to develop their online library presence in the coming years."
