UK Public Library Chooses Open Source Library Management System (LMS)
Halton library is the first UK public library to chose an Open Source LMS. It will start replacing its current system Dynix, with Koha, a complete web based solution. The library believe that during this time of public sector budget cuts it is essential to justify any spending decisions.
Paula Reilly-Cooper, Library Services Manager at Halton said "The innate flexibility of the software and service will allow us to do so much more for less, enabling us to provide an enhanced, adaptable library and information service that meets changing customer expectation". This is just the beginning of many changes to enhance Haltons library service.
