North Bethesda, MD, August 20, 2013- LibLime, a division of PTFS, announces that the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA), in Dakar, Senegal, has selected LibLime Koha 4.14 as their new ILS.
The CODESRIA staff will work with LibLime Project Management in the upcoming months to migrate bibliographic, item, and patron data to the LibLime Koha 4.14 platform. CODESRIA looks forward to taking advantage of the rich functionality in LibLime Koha 4.14, including enhanced circulation policies, the Solr search engine, full faceted support in the OPAC, an embedded New Titles list, and additional functionality for expired and cancelled holds. As with all versions of LibLime Koha since 4.8, the entire application resides in the Plack environment for enhanced performance.
About the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa
The Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) was established in 1973 as an independent pan-African research organization primarily focusing on social sciences research in Africa. CODESRIA’s mission requires the emergence of a pan-African community of researchers, the protection of their intellectual freedom and autonomy in performing their duties and the elimination of barriers regarding language, discipline, region, gender and generation. To assist with research dissemination, CODICE, the CODESRIA Documentation and Information Centre, was set up in 1983. Its main objective is to provide documentary support for CODESRIA activities and for researchers across Africa who are involved in its programs.
