VOKAL Open House at Norwich Public Library

There will be a VOKAL Open House on Thursday, September 15 from 1-3pm at the Norwich Public Library in Norwich, VT for anyone interested in learning more about our VOKAL Koha system (a project of the Green Mountain Library Consortium). We will be giving a brief introduction about the VOKAL project, demonstrating the VOKAL Koha ILS and then have time for anyone with a laptop interested in trying it out.

We have had a very busy year developing the VOKAL consortium and are fast approaching our first anniversary in September of going live with the shared VOKAL Koha ILS system! Currently 18 libraries are circulating out materials in the VOKAL system with over 30,000 patrons, nearly 170,000 distinct titles and over 400,000 distinct items. 7 libraries are scheduled through the end of the year to migrate into the system, 2 non-automated libraries are cataloging in preparation of go live this fall and a few others gearing up to begin their automation process into VOKAL. We have 12 migration slots open for 2012 and looking forward to welcoming more libraries into the VOKAL community!
