Paul Poulain, Jonathan Druart (BibLibre) and Arnaud Lelache (AFI) attended the KohaCon 2014 that was held at the National University of Cordoba in Argentina from October 6 to 11, 2014. More than 100 participants were present throughout the conference and the hackfest that followed.
Paul and Arnaud presentations
Paul Poulain presented with Chris Cormack Koha’s history and the organization of Koha’s community for the first day of the conference. He also showed for the first time Open Source ERMS (Electronic Ressources Management System) Coral that we just added to our catalog and we are setting up in Lyon 1.
Arnaud Lelache attended his first KohaCon. He took the opportunity to present Bokeh for the first time to an international audience (its presentation). The reception was good, and some librarians to advantage of the hackfest that followed to install it on their computer.
