Dan Slozat of the Crawford County Federated Library System worked closely on the migration and recently commented on the process:

We could not have asked for a better experience with ByWater. Migrating our websites and OPAC to Aspen Discovery has fully integrated all of our services into one place and gives us the tools we needed to move our libraries forward."
