Athens, OH--November 6, 2007--LibLime, the leader in open-source solutions for libraries, announced today that Debra Denault has joined the LibLime team as Operations Manager.
Debra Denault has over fifteen years experience in the library automation industry. Debra's most recent position was Associate Director of Development with VTLS Inc, where she also worked as the Product Manager for the VIRTUA Integrated Library System. She has also held senior positions with Ex Libris USA and Dynix Canada. Debra has a Master of Library and Information Science degree from the University of Western Ontario (London, Canada).
As a librarian, Debra's focus was on Library Systems Management. Through her work at several prominent ILS companies, she has gained valuable experience in system design, product management, project management, software testing, training, and customer service.
"Debra is an experienced operations manager who has worked on both sides of the fence: as both a librarian and as a vendor. So, she understands the importance of customer service, and how to make business work for--instead of against--the library community," says Joshua Ferraro, President Technology at LibLime. "LibLime's customers are going to benefit tremendously from Debra's expertise in managing development and implementation projects. She will be working with our tech team to coordinate some very large migrations and development work in the months to come."
"I am very excited about working with LibLime and being part of a team of dedicated people working on the cutting edge of library automation and open-source software technology," says Debra.
LibLime is the global leader in open-source solutions for libraries, with a mission to make open source accessible to libraries. Rather than sell software licenses for static, hard-to-customize software products, LibLime educates libraries about the benefits of open source, enabling them to make choices about how best to provide their communities and staff with better technology services. LibLime then facilitates implementation of open-source in libraries by providing outstanding development, customization, support and training solutions--solutions tailored to each library's needs.
