Koha ILS is expected to feature prominently in the forthcoming Librarians’ workshop organized by Goethe Institut in Nairobi. The workshop is scheduled to take place on 4th and 5th May 2011 at the United Kenya Club in Nairobi. The theme of the workshop is “The Modalities of Establishing a Union Catalogue for Kenya and the Standardized Integration of Local Content into a Union Catalogue”.
I a previous workshop, several suggestions on mechanisms of enabling libraries using Koha in Kenya for sharing bibliographic information have been flouted. This workshop is therefore expected to consolidate the ideas that have been raised before, but on a wider more inclusive framework that seeks to incorporate libraries not using Koha but that have sufficient technological infrastructure.
