  1. Thanks Ben. I look forward to working together with the other libraries that have shown interest in open source.

    Your presentation was thorough and covered almost everything we need to know for installation and configuration of koha.

    I look forward to getting feedback from other participants.

  2. I must admit that the training workshop was objective thanks to the facilitators Ben and Ken. Hope we will have another follow up training on the same so as to build our own technical capacity.
