Katipo Project Survival Kit

Horowhenua Library Trust

Horowhenua Library TrustKatipo has had a long standing relationship with the Horowhenua Library Trust, and prior to that the Horowhenua District Council. In the past we have provided network support, assisting them onto the internet, providing training and setup of public access terminals. In 1999 we undertook development of a new library management system for them, and Koha was born. Koha has since been released as open source software and is being taken up by libraries around the world. Koha is a comprehensive system, providing the library catalogue, membership records and management, acquisitions and budgeting, issues and returns, fines and till reconciliations and a stock management system. Koha won both the 3M Innovation in Libraries award and an Interactive New Zealand award in October 2000.

Most recently we have been working on redesigning the libraries' website and new Koha installation.
