Martin F. Olsen, System and Electronic Resources Librarian, Everett Library, Queens University of Charlotte shares their migration experience:
"Our transition to the Koha system was a positive experience throughout, from the pre migration meetings to go-live. ByWater was always ready with support, anticipating situations we had not thought of. The training was excellent, every detail of the system was explained thoroughly. Our students and faculty love the many new features, including the shelf browse which has made shelving for our student library workers a snap. Librarians love being a part of the Koha community."
