About Integration

About integration of Koha with other services


Increasingly libraries seek integration of their library management system with other services from content aggregators and security equipment distributors or other software applications through single sign-on.

Because Koha is built entirely as open source software and implements open standards throughout, it readily interoperates with other systems. Standards native to Koha include MARC21, Z39.50, SRU, SIP2, ILS-DI, OAI-PMH and LDAP.

Koha comes pre-configured for interaction with a range of third party content providers:

  • Overdrive e-books;
  • Library Thing;
  • Syndetics;
  • Baker and Taylor;
  • Amazon;

  • Coming soon: Clickview, Wheelers/ePlatform, Bolinda.
