Koha Library Management Software is a flexible, scalable long-term open source solution for libraries of all types and sizes. Catalyst's specialist Koha team work with libraries to deliver the best possible services to their users and meet their needs long into the future.
Koha, the world’s first open source integrated library system, is a modern, adaptable, future-proof system. Being open source in nature ensures that Koha is easy to use, customisable according to library guidelines, interoperable with third party content providers, responsive to mobile screen sizes, and committed to ongoing improvement.
The continuous advancement and innovation within Koha is thanks to the collective efforts and support of over 15,000 libraries, 400 developers, as well as being available in over 40 languages. Koha is the world’s most installed library management system, with no licensing fees, which means that you can use your budget for developing future services and software.
Catalyst are proud to host Kohacon2020; an annual conference attended by Librarians, Software Developers and other contributors to the project from all over the world. All are welcome and we can’t wait to see you.
