Koha is emerging as the most preferred ILS, especially in India as there have been significant customisation efforts by Koha Community and also major Service Vendors like Informatics India Ltd. satisfying the functional needs of Indian Libraries including Academic (Large and Small), Special and Public. Informatics India, has set up separate Library Technology Division to support the libraries in training, installation and local adaptation of Koha and its integration with various components of Digital Library Systems used in India. . The company provides cloud based hosting ervice to Libraries for ILS and Institutional Repositories (IR) making IT infrastructure management affordable to Indian libraries. This company also organises National Koha Conclave as an annual event in February to bring Koha community on a common platform for developmental exchanges.
Apart from this a number of Seminars on Koha are being organised in India. More than 500 libraries are currently using Koha in India. The Supreme Court of India has instructed all High Courts to implement Koha in their libraries. Council of Scientific & Industrial Research is using Koha for its network of 50 research libraries and has its Union catalog(KnowGate) Union Catalogue for all its Institutions on Koha platform. Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), another research cluster has adapted Koha for its 100+ libraries. Most of the universities in Karnataka State have already implemented Koha and others planning to go for it soon. While most of the libraries in India plan to switchover to Koha retrospective cataloging and catalog record migration remains the main challenge as many of the legacy ILS systems and their OPAC records are not MARC compliant. Informatics has been successful in addressing these challenges.
