Developing Koha for Indian University Libraries

Nucsoft OSS labs has started work on a software development project to make Koha suitable for use in University libraries in India.

Development will primarily be in the areas of:

  • Approvals and payments work-flow in Acquisitions
  • Tighter integration of Serials Subscriptions & Acquisitions
  • Article Indexing and Analytical records
  • Selective Dissemination of Information

The project has been initiated and significantly funded by RapidRadio
Solutions, a leading RFID technology provider to libraries in India.
Partial funding for analytical records has been provided by the
Mississippi Department of Archives and Records in the USA.

All the software developed as part of this project will be contributed
for inclusion in upcoming Koha versions. We also intend to leverage
the expertise of the library community in India and the wider Koha
community by conducting the project in an public manner -
specifications and software will be available for review and testing
by any interested party.

We expect the new software to be available for use in 4-6 months time.
