Ghana: Ghana University library goes open-source

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Ghana, Education, Technology

The Balme Library [1] at the University of Ghana has gone digital and open-source [2]: “Yes, you heard me right. The Balme library records have been fully digitized and guess the platform being used… Ubuntu 6.06! I needed to stretch a bit after sitting for some two hours and took a stroll into the main hall of the Balme library. I noticed some computer terminals and upon closer inspection, I realized the machines had Ubuntu 6.06 installed on them.”
