Belinda Sedlak, Technical Services Librarian, recently commented on the migration

Having been through the initial automation of our catalog and one migration, I was hoping that this would be easier...and it was! The Koha teams were so helpful and patient, helping us make the connections between terminology and functionality in our old system as we transitioned to the new. We are a small library with few staff, but the teams worked around our schedules so that we could continue our jobs with minimal disruption. We're very happy to now be a part of the Koha community.
