Received from website contact info:
I am the current Volunteer Librarian at the Charles Darwin Research 
Station, located on the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador. We are a non-profit 
institution with very limited funding but we have an extensive and unique

collection of materials on natural history, conservation, and 
biodeversity, including marine life. Our collection is approximately 
10,000 items, including books, serials, archival collections, maps, and 
photographs . 

We are interested in using Koha as our new ILS. I have reviewed your 
website and understand that you are using Koha for the CATalog of FISH 

If you don't mind, I would like to ask you a few questions about Koha and

the StreamNet Library:

1) I understand that you are hosting and maintaining Koha locally and not

relying on LibLimés hosting service. Have you found Koha to be 
manageable as open source software?

The Charles Darwin Foundation for the Galapagos Islands (CDF) is an 
international non-profit research organization dedicated to providing 
scientific research, technical assistance and information to ensure 
conservation success in Galapagos. To learn more about us, visit 

Please contact me if you need additional information. I can be reached by

email at dale.foster at fcdarwin.org.ec or on Skype at infographicsDF.  We 
are wanting to make a decision very soon and so I look forward to your 
reply. Your assistance is appreciated.
