The library has about 5000 books and will be run mostly by student workers. The requirements are low cost, ease of use and maintenance, and support for Arabic and English. Barcode printing and scanning capabilities would be great as well. I've looked briefly at koha, but is there anything else out there (both hardware and software) slashdotters can recommend?"
