Open source for Cape libraries

Anonymous Patron writes Interesting News from South Africa. The City of Cape Town and the State IT Agency (Sita) plan to jointly develop an open source solution to replace the PALS system used by most of the country’s municipalities to manage their libraries.

City of Cape Town CIO Nirvesh Sooful says a memorandum of understanding is being worked out between the city and Sita to share the costs of developing the new system that is expected to save millions of rands in the long-term.”
