Kohacon14 Day 3 – School Bibliotecology 2

Next we had  3 second year library science students presenting their work. I hope I summarised their talk accurately.

They mentioned it is still a work in process, and that they are presenting preliminary findings. Their project was on the uptake u of Koha in the Cordoba province. Researching the changes, and impact. They used a generic survey which they did either by email or in person. They surveyed 56 libraries, public, school, academic and specials.

Their results are still preliminary, but they shared what they have with us.

  • Administration access, Advantages, price were 2 big reasons why they chose Koha
