Amy Adams, Assistant Director at Salina Public Library recently commented on the migration.

We needed to improve our catalog to create a better experience for our patrons. ByWater proved to be a great solution. Their team was responsive and knowledgable. They adapted training to accommodate the need to conduct it remotely and seemed as invested in the project's success as we were. We look forward to continuing to work with the ByWater team.
