Addie Van Salisbury of the Aspen Implementation Team recently commented:
It was great working with one of our long-time Koha partners and getting them re-acquainted with Bywater staff and resources. They have incorporated some beautiful design elements into their Aspen Discovery catalog, such as using HTML to design custom placards. We look forward to seeing what else they create and are happy to have them as a part of the Aspen community!
