FEstival – online conference about Koha and Metabase for Further Education colleges
3rd June 2020 | admin
On June 3 2020, with the backdrop of the Covid-19 lockdown, we hosted a virtual ‘FEstival’ conference of presentations and demonstrations of the Koha open source library management system and the Metabase analytics solution – also open source. Joining PTFS Europe staff on the panel of presenters were Samantha Goldsmith from University Centre Leeds to talk about their Koha implementation and Penny Robertson and George Harkins of City of Glasgow College to talk about how they use Metabase with Koha.
All of the presentations from the event are available to view on the PTFS Europe YouTube channel, either as individual presentations or the livestream of the whole conference. You can also see them below.
