The influx of information resources and the need to process and render speedy and efficient services to patrons has given a rise to the use of software that could aid the library and librarians. This study investigated Koha Integrated Library Management System (ILMS) implementation in Admiralty University of Nigeria (ADUN) Library. It covers the planning, acquisition and how the software is used. It enumerated the benefits, features and implementation of Koha ILMS at ADUN Library, and further discussed the problems encountered throughout the implementation procedure. The research recommended that: Librarians are encouraged to consider making functional the other modules of KOHA ILS for complete library automation; sustainable power infrastructure, like Solar Systems or a dedicated power generating set should be available so that library servers can keep running; librarians should go beyond just being trained on how to use Koha ILS but start learning about Koha installation, programing and database management skills, which will help to reduce majority of the setbacks faced by libraries in maintaining their ILS.
