ByWater completed the transition of the library's almost 24,000 holdings from SirsiDynix Horizon and continues to provide support services for Koha.

Assistant Director Jean Willis recently commented on the implementation:

Our library's internal Koha migration team appreciated the tremendous, detailed support and training that ByWater provided for our ILS migration. Our library utilizes all modules of Koha, so the learning curve was steep. ByWater's transition team, led by Donna and Lucas, definitely ensured a successful outcome."
