From the Koha mailing list today

“Delhi Public Library is an autonomous organization under the Ministry of Tourism & Culture and governed by Delhi Library Board, fully financed by the Government of India. Delhi Public Library was started as a UNESCO project in the year 1951 by the Govt. of India. It was inaugurated by first Prime Minister of India Hon’ble Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, started as small unitary library in old Delhi, Opp. Old Delhi Railway Station. It has since developed into a premier Public Library System in the metropolitan city of Delhi”

This is the excerpt from the welcome message given on the home page of Delhi Public Library (http://www.dpl.gov.in). I would like to share with you all that this historic library having more than 2 Million books/bibliographic material in Indian and English Language is now online using Koha. Catalogue can be accessed at:

It is the real implementation of Koha 3 without any paid support (I think first in South Asia, plz correct me someone if I am wrong). I congratulate Mr. Amit and Mr. Sudhir on this achievement.

Note: Amit is trying to install Koha 3 Stable Release today, Amit! keep it up..
