Koha is the best value for your money.

Koha is an affordable, cost-effective solution for any size library. And better still, it’s cloud-ready

Perfect for all budgets, great and small



Affordable: Koha is an open-source software and it therefore costs a fraction of what you would otherwise pay to buy, install, and run commercial library management systems such as Sierra, Millennium, Horizon, and others. You can save even more money and time when you run it on AWS Cloud.

Library Standards Compliant. Koha is built using library standards and protocols such as MARC 21, UNIMARC, z39.50, SRU/SW, SIP2, SIP/NCIP, ensuring interoperability between Koha and other systems and technologies, while supporting existing workflows and tools.

Web-based Interfaces. Koha’s OPAC, circirculation, management and self-checkout interfaces are all based on standards-compliant World Wide Web technologies–XHTML, CSS and Javascript–making Koha a truly platform-independent solution. You can now host your Koha library server on AWS Cloud using our pre-configured, ready-to-launch Amazon Machine Images (AMIs).

Free Software / Open Source. Koha is distributed under the Free Software General Public License (GPL) version 3 or later.

No Vendor Lock-in. It is an important part of the free software promise that there is no vendor lock-in: libraries are free to install and use Koha themselves if the have the in-house expertise or to purchase support or development services from the best available sources.
