About The Catamount Library Network

The Catamount Library Network (CLN) is a member governed consortium of libraries in Vermont. CLN libraries share a common catalog and use Koha open source software. Libraries in the CLN system share circulation policies, item and collection types, and allow patron-initiated holds. The CLN was founded in partnership with the Vermont Department of Libraries and is conceived as a model collective catalog consortium for Vermont.

About Koha

Koha is the first open-source Integrated Library System (ILS). In use worldwide, its development is steered by a growing community of libraries collaborating to achieve their technology goals. Koha's impressive feature set continues to evolve and expand to meet the needs of its user base. It includes modules for circulation, cataloging, acquisitions, serials, reserves, patron management, branch relationships, and more.
