The Benefits

Thinking of automating? Here’s why it’s a good decision…

Improve Customer Service.

Automating helps to take some of the workload off from your librarians, especially in the areas of acquisitions, cataloging, notices and circulation, giving them more time to serve their patrons and invest in developing the library.


Faster Cataloging.

Take advantage of the automated cataloging standards such as MARC (Machine Readable Cataloging) and copy cataloging modules in Koha. Librarians will be able to import ready made bibliographic data from numerous high quality sources like the Library of Congress or the British Public Library. We’ve shown that you can catalog book in less than 2 minutes.

Easier Access.

Patrons will find it easy to find library books, e-resources and other materials using the Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC), even when the library is closed. And because we host Koha on our servers, you can access your library from anywhere in the world.

It Saves You Money.

You will save money as it reduces the need to hire more library personnel. Both big and small libraries will benefit from this since an automated library system like Koha will perform many of the functions that were normally done manually and required several people to perform.
