One of the benefits of having a library system that is based on web technologies is the ability to integrate it with your existing intranet or website.
With Smart-net we add the ability to search the catalog directly from the intranet. No need to access the OPAC or the catalog interface. This makes the catalog a whole lot more accessible and useable.
It is also possible to add a login box to your intranet or website that allows a user to login to Koha directly from the intranet without having to go to the staff/client interface first.
