Hi all,

Since our first two patches have been pushed to HEAD for inclusion in 3.2 we are happy to introduce ourselves to the Koha community:

BSZ (http://titan.bsz-bw.de/cms/bsz/about/) is a state institution of Baden-Württemberg, Germany, for libraries, museums and archives. The BSZ division 'Union Catalog' operates the Südwestdeutscher Bibliotheksverbund (SWB), a union catalog comprising more than 1000 mostly academic libraries in Baden-Württemberg, Saarland, Saxony, and other states in Germany, as well as those of the Goethe-Instituts.

The BSZ division 'Library Systems' provides an application service for a (commercial) library system to academic libraries in the SWB consortium. In December 2008 we made our first contract to host and support Koha, the system will go live on October, 12th 2009. Items have been entered and fitted with RFID tags over the last months, the library will use a self check system connected to Koha. For the time being we plan to support Koha in another three libraries. Our main focus will be the German Koha translation and documentation.

Looking forward to working with you,

Katrin Fischer
