Hi Nicole,

I saw your post for newsletter articles. Look at our story.

University of Guyana (uog.edu.gy), Berbice Campus (South America) has launched it's Library Automation System KOHA on 12th May, 2011. The collection size is around 13000. We are also working on implementing Koha for University's main campus (Turkeyen) Library which has a collection size of 140000.

This is first of it's kind in the country (Guyana). University of Guyana is the first one to implement this world's leading Open Source Library Software(Koha) in the Caribbean.

We have started helping the National Library of Guyana to start their journey with Koha. I request you to publish this information on koha.org to promote interest among the Caribbean Islands.
