COLUMBUS, OH - Dec. 28, 2009 - LibLime, the leader in open-source solutions for libraries, announced today that the Oskaloosa Public Library in Oskaloosa, Iowa, has selected LibLime Enterprise Koha for their next integrated library system.
The Library will be migrating from SirsiDynix's Unicorn.
The Library's system will be installed, operated and maintained at one of LibLime's carrier-class data centers and distributed via Software as a Service on LibLime's Cloud Computing platform.
LibLime Enterprise Koha is built on over two years of completed customer-sponsored development, including several highly-anticipated public and consortia features. This Software as a Service offering on LibLime's new Cloud Computing platform will also feature regular monthly releases as additional customer-sponsored development is completed.
LibLime will provide the Library with professional project management to handle the software installation, full data migration (the Library currently supports over 65,000 unique titles and 15,000 patrons), training on their new Koha system, as well as ongoing support and software development.
"We believe the future of libraries lies within the open-source model. We look forward to the flexibility and customizations, and being free of the shackles of the proprietary model," says the Library's director, Suzann Holland.
"LibLime is pleased to welcome Oskaloosa Public Library to our family of customers. We look forward to helping enable the Library achieve its important service to the Oskaloosa community by delivering an affordable, next generation ILS solution," said Susan Buchanan, VP Library Partners at LibLime.
