Koha, anyone?

A couple years ago I was on a worldcon panel about libraries and I mentioned that I'd seen some early work on a free software system for libraries. I couldn't recall the name of the system due to a brain-fart at the time, and kept meaning to look the info up when I got home...

So, when cleaning up a pile of old con stuff I found the note to myself.. and just in case anyone out there is still waiting for this information, here it is:

http://www.koha.org/about/

This is an Open Source software that'll run a library: frontend and backend; it could be used for personal and club libraries as well as private corporate libraries... and public libraries.

Cost: free
OS: Linux

My recent experience with it? Ummm... I'm rebuilding my linux machines so I haven't used anything but the online demos yet.
