About the Workshop Theme

World over, libraries are constantly facing challenges to meet the ever increasing expectations of users due to lack of funds.

Koha satisfies all the functional requirements of a library management system. It is full featured MARC based integrated library system and is constantly upgraded according to the changing technology requirements.
