Hi Joel,
Welcome to Koha.

Basically you need to prepare your biblio file as a marc (.mrc) file for 
import to Koha.  The main trick is that Koha stores item (holdings) 
records in marc tag 952.  Information about the fields expected by Koha 
can be found at the koha to marc mapping link on the Administration page 
of Koha.  A tool such as Marc Edit can help you to prepare the data.

If you have a particular question, you can ask it on this list and you 
may get help.

There is also commercial support available for Koha, including for data 
migration.  A list of support companies is here:

Best wishes for your migration.
