In a major automation project carried out by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, public libraries in Turkey have been automated using Koha. This major project includes a total of 1,112 library branches that operate under the jurisdiction of the Ministry, with a combined collections represented by 8 million bibliographic records. It does not include public libraries with other organizational affiliations, though success of this project is expected to strengthen interest in Koha in the country.
