Our group held its face to face meeting, headed by the National Library of the Philippines (NLP), after proposals for the Koha 2015 International Conference were closed and voting had ended. This post is our dream of hosting a future Koha international conference. Since 2006, NLP is the biggest Koha user in the Philippines, with it having millions of bibliographic records, and all public libraries which are supported by the NLP also use Koha ILS for automating their library processes.
