Kalleen Marquise, Partner Engagement Specialist, recently commented on the migration:

The Concordia team went through this migration during a difficult time, having experienced a severe weather event in February causing damage to their library. Throughout, the staff kept providing virtual assistance to students while going through this implementation! It was amazing to see their perseverance and we were proud to support them during this time."
