ByWater Solutions, an open source community contributor and America's forefront provider of Koha support, announced today that the Bowling Library at Judson College, of Marion, Alabama is now live on Koha! ByWater Solutions completed the migration of the library's 60,000 plus holdings from Voyager last year and is providing ongoing Koha support and hosting services to them. The library's customized Koha OPAC can be viewed at: http://judson.bywatersolutions.com/
Nathan Curulla, Co-Owner of ByWater commented on the library's move to Koha:
"Working with the team at the Bowling Library has been a real pleasure. The best part about our job is meeting new librarians who have the same vision as we do when it comes to data ownership and freedom. We are thrilled to be able to add functionality to the library's catalog without breaking the bank, all while providing the support services we have become known for."
About Judson College
Since 1838, Judson College has been committed to preparing young women for lives of purpose through the transmission of knowledge, the refinement of intellect, the nurturing of faith, the promotion of service, and the development of character. A private, four-year, Christian college with degree programs in liberal arts and the sciences, Judson College helps each student reach her full potential by providing her with opportunities to engage her mind, practice her faith, and live her purpose.
Over the past twenty years, 96% of Judson women have been employed or have entered graduate school within a year of graduation. Through academic and co-curricular experiences, Judson helps each student find her voice while she earns the credentials that will help her voice be heard. As the only women's college in Alabama and the most affordable women's college in the nation, Judson is committed to being a place devoted to young women. We believe that this environment helps our students develop the knowledge, confidence, and leadership skills they need to achieve their goals in a more profound way than they could in a coeducational setting.
After 178 years, Judson College remains loyal to its original mission of educating young women in preparation for a life of service. We are a community that finds ongoing meaning in our shared traditions of the past, work in the present, and hopes for the future as we seek to recognize and embody God's light and truth in the world.
