- Getting Started
Demo sites serve many functions. They can be used in evaluation. They provide the opportunity to do data mapping (see Data Preparation). Demo sites can be used to determine and test what the best setup (rules, policies, settings, etc.) is for your library. and for staff to learn the system. Staff training should be conducted using the demo site by providing the opportunity to learn the different modules and how they differ from your library's current ILS. These differences should be documented by creating new workflows. Lastly, they serve as a test run for migration.
Koha vendor Liblime provides demo sites with which to try the Koha staff interface and OPAC: http://www.liblime.com/demos.
The Koha Community wiki lists several demo sites: http://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Koha_Demo_Databases
