Managing technologies and automated library systems

Managing technologies and automated library systems in developing countries : open source vs commercial options : proceedings of the IFLA pre-conference satellite meeting / edited by Bernard Dione, K.G. Saur, 2008

This funny little hardcover has academic papers on library automation in Africa. The book is partly in English, partly in French. It is not at Amazon, and that makes it rare! Read the paper by Norwegian students who used the open source Koha ILS in a Kenyan library. Maybe OPL should be using Koha because it is or will be better than Lirico/sirsidynix, so OPL can save money for more book purchases.
