Mysore University adopts Koha

This was an announcement by Dr. Goudar, Visiting Professor and Library Advisor at the Mysore University Library.

"After an extensive survey and analysis, an Expert Committee consisting of senior
library professionals and teaching faculty of University of Mysore recommended
the adoption of KOHA, an open source integrated library management system for
automating libraries under University of Mysore including Main Library and
libraries of Constituent Colleges (5), Institutions (13), PG Centers (3) and
Departments (37)."

At this time over 125,000 records have been converted from legacy systems and loaded on Koha. Cataloging of the rest of the collection is in full swing, circulation is expected to start in the next few weeks.

Koha is hosted on Amazon EC2 platform, this too is something new in the Indian Library market place.
