GivingTuesday Koha Q&A

GivingTuesday is a global movement encouraging people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

In support of this initiative, the koha-US Education Committee will be holding a 2-hour YouTube livestream on November 30th starting at 9:00am PST (Noon EST, 17:00 UTC). 

We are planning a Koha Question and Answers session and need your help to make this a success! Please submit Koha-related questions for the committee to address during the livestream no later than November 15th via this form: https://forms.gle/jhebiNf5j8r6PnKU7

No topic is off limits. We can talk about participating in the Koha community, customization, report-writing, workflows, features, etc. — if we can’t get to all the questions, we will work to provide follow-up beyond the event.
