ByWater Solutions, America's forefront provider of Open Source library technology support, announced today that they are providing support and hosting services for the Aspen Open Source Discovery system for Yavapai Library Network in Arizona.
The ByWater Solutions Aspen Team worked with the Yavapai Library Network to develop course reserves integration. Symphony ILS libraries can now search course reserves and limit their results by a library, instructor, course number, and course name in Aspen Discovery!

Valerie Burns, Yavapai Library Network Manager, recently commented on the implementation.
The Aspen team did a great job of communicating with our team throughout implementation. They set up weekly meetings that were extremely productive, often creating an enhancement or fixing a bug during the meeting. The ticketing system made it easy to track our requests and monitor their progress. The Aspen team's ability to listen, understand and respond to our priorities made a big project manageable and a real pleasure.
