Melodie-- I asked for one of the free classroom Koha installations from LibLime back in August, but they didn't get back to me, so nothing to report here. :-( The LibLime website just posted a new press release saying they are opening up the program again, presumably with Koha 3.0. http://liblime.com/news-items/press-releases/liblime-upgrades-koha-with-class-free-hosted-koha-for-library-classrooms-worldwide I've filled out the form again and will report back if anything happens. Installing Koha on your own (with some school tech support help) seems within the realm of possibility, but still has the scary "free kitten" factor. If LibLime does come through with the free installations it seems like the best of all possible worlds. Even with their open demos on the website at LibLime you can change absolutely anything in the staff client and see it take effect in real time: http://liblime.com/demos Cheryl >Is anyone here using Koha for their class?
