English abstract

Koha is an open-source Integrated Library System (ILS) developed in New Zealand and deployed for the first time in January of 2000 for Horowhenua Library Trust. Koha is a full-fledged software with basic and advanced features. Koha has also a strong and wide community of librarians and developers. In particular, it is suitable to all institutions who want to automate their libraries using a system that allows a complete control over data and over software itself. CILEA worked to adapt Koha to Italian libraries and now it is a part of the community.
