NESCOT chooses Koha as its new Library Management System.

NESCOT (North East Surrey College of Technology) have chosen Koha to replace their LMS. PTFS Europe has implemented the new system and will provide on-going hosting and support services to NESCOT to ensure its success in supporting these collections into the future.

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.

Cristina Ruiz de Asua, Learning Centre Manager at NESCOT :
We are thrilled to announce the successful migration to Koha, a powerful and modern library management system. Koha empowers users to discover and utilise our collections with greater ease. We are particularly grateful for the exceptional support provided by the PTFS team. Their dedication and expertise throughout the process were invaluable in enhancing our Learning Resources Centre for the entire College community.

Sam Goldsmith, Business Development Manager at PTFS Europe says:
We are delighted to welcome NESCOT as a new PTFS Europe customer. As part of our growing community of academic libraries using Koha, the college’s varied online and physical resources can now be accessed by students and staff in their Koha LRC catalogue. Koha supported by PTFS Europe will encourage new innovations and integrations to support NESCOT’s continued collection growth and improve services to students and staff. PTFS Europe is thrilled to supply the Koha library solution to NESCOT.
