Potthakalaya is a small project aimed at providing librarians with free OpenSource software tools which make the myriad tasks of librarianship more efficient.
The core is Precise 5.7.1 + XAMPP
Pottahakalaya comes in two Flavours : Base and Full.
Base provides the core software for any library - the catalog and resource management system, including circulation, via the excellent Senayan software developed in Indonesia . [ See http://slims.web.id ].
It also contains MRBS, the resource and room booking/scheduling system, and Moodle: a learning/content management system. These are all web-based applications and this installation can serve them across a network,
Full includes in addition to the base: Calibre Ebook reader/manager, JabRef reference manager, and dotProject - project management software. All are useful in library operations.
Fonts to support Myanmar, CJK, Thai and Bangla languages have been included.
The relevant iso files are here : https://www.wuala.com/gurujim/Potthakalaya
and also mirrored at : http://archive.org/details/Puppy_Linux_potthakalaya { thanks ally Smile }

Feel free to further mirror the above directory and post the locations in this thread. All feedback is welcome. Smile

Jim,
Thanks for yoru project. I am a parent who helps at CRICs in Chiangrai. I would like to know where to go to learn how to use the library software. We use a cloud based right now. Our internet goes on and off. So I was looking ot see what is in linux that could be kept offline . Can you point me in the right direction?

Loyal, have you downloaded either of the isos? That would be the first step. If you don't take it, there's not much help anyone can give you.

I think Flash has already covered the first step: You need to download one of the isos , burn it to CD, boot it up, and play. Seriously, just explore and play with the software, like children learn. Then explore some of the links provided on the CD to explore further. Specific questions about particular components ( Senayan, Moodle, etc ) are best addressed to that component's developers and/or support forums.
However , I can mention a few things : I am assuming your school/library may operate in Thai as well as English since you are in Chiangrai? You will find that I included Thai fonts and some limited Thai input support in the isos. You will find that Senayan library software has Thai language support built in. You will see also that Moodle has significant support for Thai language ( see https://moodle.org/course/view.php?id=36 ) . You will need to explore the Puppy Linux language support pages if you intend to use Puppy as your installation base for the packages [ Please remember the main purpose of these isos is to DEMONSTRATE/showcase the packages. ].
Intermittent Internet access is certainly a problem if your school/library relies on cloud data, and yes you CAN solve this by running your own Linux based network, although it will require significant planning, whether you intend to migrate entirely to local hosting , or some hybrid system.
Please message me if you have particular questions about the Senayan library software, as that is what we use in our library at ChiangMai Smile
