Texas State Law Library goes live on ByWater Solutions Koha support

ByWater Solutions, an open source community contributor and America's forefront provider of Koha support, announced today that the Texas State Law Library of Austin, TX. is now live on their Koha open source integrated library system.

ByWater Solutions has completed the migration of the Libraries' more than 200,000 titles earlier this year and is providing ongoing hosting and support services to the library. The Texas State Law Library's customized online catalog can be viewed at: http://txsll.bywatersolutions.com

Ruth Harrison, Reference Librarian and Network Administrator, commented on their decision to migrate to Koha with ByWater:

"We are very happy with Koha. It was important to us to find a library system that was customizable. With Koha, we can customize features, look and feel and we have direct access to the data to use in other applications. We're only limited by our imaginations. The move to open source has given us the freedom to create the library system we want. Working with ByWater Solutions to migrate from our previous system went very well. They've provided excellent service to us every step of the way, through planning, migration, go-live and everyday use."
