New online catalogue at Kharagauli Municipal Library

One more Georgian library stared conversion of catalogues to electronic format. Now Kharagauli municipal library (director Nana Lursmanashvili) installed OpenBiblio ILS and started entry of biblio-records. 

Interesting that instyallation was made distantly by staff of Library Association, while training provied by colleagues- neighbours from Khashuri municipal Library (Dir. Diana Gelashvili).

This new OPAC is here.

ILS OpenBiblio

Integrated Library System OpenBiblio is an "Open Source" software for management of automated catalogue systems of libraries.

Openness means that it is free (can be freely downloaded from a website), but also makes possible its localization (translation and adaptation to local writing system), adaptation to local bibliographic codes, filing rules or management requirements.
OpenBiblio is used mostly in small and middle size libraries (up to 60000 titles) which makes majority of Georgian libraries, including public, school, college, university, NGO or governmental libraries (e.g. Ministries).

What we do
