  • 3. Abstract
    • This case study presents work carried out in the last year to build a catalogue for the Feminist Library , an independent collection of Second Wave Women’s Movement materials run entirely by volunteers. It describes the set-up of the Koha Library Management System and the use of the catalogue as inventory, sales tool and record of a unique collection and system of thought. The challenges faced include technical open source issues, working with an entirely volunteer management and workforce, training and time management. Based on their experience, the presenters highlight their recommendations for anyone else wanting to use open source LMS and pinpoint pitfalls as well as benefits of open source cataloguing.
