About LibLime Academic Koha

LibLime Academic Koha is the brainchild of a group of over 30 academic and research libraries who have been guiding and sponsoring development of the application over the last four years. Other academic and research libraries are encouraged to join them in their development efforts. All member libraries contribute annually towards a mutual development fund which is used to sponsor new development. The group is self-governed under the leadership of a Steering Committee. The Steering Committee oversees functional committees (ie, circulation, cataloging, acquisitions, etc) and approves design specifications, commitment of funds, and upgrade programs.
