My work as a library manager has changed dramatically with Koha. Now I can start a new service or implement a new feature in the ILS for our users and staff with very little effort. I have complete control.


This is Koha

With Koha we have full control over our ILS and can adjust it to our specific needs. For a small specialized library such as ours, we would never get the same flexibility from a proprietary system. In addition, we benefit from the development of the Koha community of thousands of libraries throughout the world.

Implementing an Open Source ILS such as Koha strengthens the ties between libraries and library readers. Koha places librarians in the driving seat as librarians determine the developing process. This is why a user group, such as the Koha Gruppo Italianio, is essential as a forum to exchange ideas and new projects.

We aim to inform the community of information professionals, both national and international, about Koha, an Open Source ILS with comprehensive functionality that is used worldwide in thousands of libraries of all sizes.
