The study explores the adoption of Koha ILMS in the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB) and Indian Institute of Technology Bhubaneswar (IITBBS). The particular study researcher adopted the survey method and questionnaire tool used for data collection. The finding of the study shows both institutes are using commercial software before adopting Koha. Institutes migrate their data from old ILMS to Koha; Only IITBBS faces data quality problems during migration. Almost all of Koha modules have well received by both institutes. They are satisfied with only the acquisition module. The function of serial modules is unclear to IITB; however, open-source, user-friendly, source code and ease of use are compelling reasons to implement Koha and overall experience with Koha is excellent by the institutes.
