Koha

The new version of Koha (2.2.2) is available.

Koha is the 1st Open-Source Integrated Library System. Released first in New Zealand, in January 2000, it is maintained by a team of volunteers from around the globe. The Koha system is a full catalogue, OPAC, circulation and acquisitions system.

Koha 2.2 is more than 247,000 lines of code, developed by more than 30 different developers (excluding translators).

With the 2.2 version, Koha is now a mature product, with many nice features. It's used in more than 50 libraries, of all kinds (public, schools, religious, etc.), of all sizes (from 1 to 8 branches, from 1000 to 300,000 items).
