Dalarna University https://www.du.se/en has chosen PTFS Europe to host and support its Koha system.
Koha Library Management System
With over 15,000 systems worldwide, Koha is one of the most widely used Library Management Systems (LMS) in the world. Koha is entirely web-based for both staff and public functions. This helps make the system light, easy to use, easy to deploy and easy to manage.
Koha’s impressive feature set continues to evolve and expand to meet the needs of its user base. It includes modules for circulation, cataloguing, acquisitions, serials, course reserves, user management, inter library loans, and more.
Petra Gustaffson, Librarian at Dalarna University says:
We look forward to working with PTFS Europe since they have proven to be liable, fast and have a great support as far as we can tell. Our transition from the former supplier couldn’t have been made easier. The support system is easy to use, and they are interested in the work that we do in Sweden.
Sam Goldsmith, Business Development Manager at PTFS Europe says:
We are delighted to welcome Dalarna University as a new PTFS Europe customer. As part of our growing community of academic libraries using Koha, the universities’ varied online and physical resources can now be accessed by students and staff in their Koha library catalogue. Koha supported by PTFS Europe will encourage new innovations and integrations to support the university’s continued collection growth and improving services to students and staff.
PTFS Europe is thrilled to supply the Koha library solution to Högskolan Dalarna. We look forward to seeing how the library team leverages the system to further highlight their excellent service.
