The purpose of this paper is to look at how the library sector might benefit from open source, from the point of view of the current vendor/owner of Koha, an open source library management system.
The paper is based on the author's experience in the library systems market.
The paper finds that increasing numbers of libraries are migrating from the major proprietary vendors to both Evergreen and Koha.
The vendor viewpoint supplies the value of this paper.
