The Government of Kerala,a tiny well-developed state lying in the south-west part of India, has recently made a decision in principle to make Koha as its official software for computerization of libraries under Government control.

It is going ahead with further steps to implement the project by The Directorate of Technical Education in association with the Community Development Centre, Government Polytechnic, Kalamassery.

A few meetings of key stakeholders and a training of librarians were conducted for this purpose. The installation process of the 2.2.9( Linux version) of the software has been customized by Mr Gilesh, Lecturer in Computer Science & Engineering, Govt Engineering College, Kannur ( gileshmp@gmail.com) with the help of Mr Tomson, Librarian, Devagiri College, Kozhikode (thomsonrajini@yahoo.com). Further clarifications on the inside story of this positive development can be obtained from them directly.

The project envisages a network of libraries in the State that will be accessible to the users from a single portal, in the later stage, according to Mr Saji T Nair (saji969@yahoo.com), the Project Director of this innovative attempt.
