Chris Cormack Wins New Zealand Award for Koha Leadership

Wellington, NZ--October 29, 2007--LibLime, the leader in open-source solutions for libraries, announced today that Chris Cormack, VP of Research and Development for LibLime, has won the Open Source Contributor Award at the first ever New Zealand Open Source Awards.

The New Zealand Open Source Awards 2007 recognize and promote: the contributions of New Zealanders to open-source projects and exemplary use of open source by New Zealand organizations. The awards were sponsored by Google, RedHat and other prominent software companies. It was organized by CatalystIT (an open-source company based in Wellington).

Chris Cormack, the current Koha QA Manager and former release manager for V1.2, was author of the original version of Koha, released in 1999. The award recognizes Chris' tireless, ongoing effort on the Koha project which has since turned into a international software project.

About Koha

Since it was first put into production in early 2000, Koha has enabled new realities of open access, affordability, and free innovation for hundreds of small and medium-sized libraries around the world. Koha has lived up to its name, which means ‘Gift’ in the Maori language of New Zealand. From the outset, many libraries understood the power of this gift. They downloaded it, they installed it, they changed it, and they contributed their solutions back to the library community.

Several companies around the world support Koha, providing libraries with a full array of services including installation, migration assistance, data integrity testing, staff training, software maintenance, support and customization. To learn more about what services are available visit http://koha.org/support/.

LibLime then facilitates implementation of open-source in libraries by providing outstanding development, customization, support and training solutions--solutions tailored to each library's needs.
