Greeting from the Arab World to all in the Koha Community
I am happy to announce that we now have more than 230 libraries running their library catalog on Koha ILS in the Arab World.
You can see all 234 library names in this table: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ m2a8cg13hfwf0o7/%D9%85%D9%83%D8%AA%D8%A8%D8%A7%D8%AA%20%D8% AA%D8%B4%D8%BA%D9%84%20%D9%81%D9%87%D8%B1%D8%B3%D9%87%D8%A7% 20%D8%B9%D9%84%D9%89%20%D9%86%D8%B8%D8%A7%D9%85%20%D9%83%D9% 88%D9%87%D8%A7%20%D9%81%D9%8A%20%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%88%D8%B7%D9% 86%20%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%B9%D8%B1%D8%A8%D9%8A%20-%2007-3-2018.pdf?dl=0
They are distributed around in the Arab countries as follows: United Arab Emirates (11); Jordan (8); Bahrain (1); AlGeria (1); Saudi Arabia (97); Sudan (28); Iraq (28); Kuwait (1); Tunisia (1); Oman Sultanate (12); Syria (21); Palestine (1); Lebanon (6); Egypt (18).
These are only libraries we happened to know because we are the Koha support company for in Saudi Arabia and UAE, or they are served by a local Koha support companies, like Egypt Vision supporting some in Egypt and Saudi, or by Bywater Solutions in UAE, or libraries which have their own in-house support teams, like in Sudan and Iraq. We think the list will exceed 350 libraries that are using Koha today in our region if every local Koha library announces itself.
In behalf of all Koha libraries in the Arab world, we want to say thank you Koha community members, users/ libraries/ vendors around the world, for your contributions and support to make Koha what it is today. In particular, I would like to thank Bywater Solutions for their great and genuine efforts in improving Koha functionalities and in making Koha support reach records high in customers satisfaction. Our thanks are extended to Katipo, Catalyst and BibLibre for being there for koha development and support since the early days of Koha as I can remember.
I hope to meet you all one day to thank you in person in behalf of all of us here in the Arabic world, using and/or supporting Koha ILS.
Salam to you all.
Thanks, Massoud M. AlShareef,
