Press Release: ByWater Solutions [June 6, 2022]

Memphis University School goes live on Koha with ByWater Support

ByWater Solutions, America's forefront provider of Open Source library technology support, announced that the Memphis University School Joseph R. Hyde, Jr. Library Learning Center is now live on Koha ILS with ByWater Support. ByWater Solutions completed the migration of 36,000 plus bibliographic records.

Wendy Trenthem, Library Director, Memphis University School, recently commented on the migration:

Memphis University School is excited to migrate to Koha. We ended a long-standing consortium of private school libraries and had an opportunity to select an ILS that would be right-sized to serve our students and faculty. We were able to customize the OPAC and offer a modern interface that is easy to use. For our small staff, we love that we can adjust administrative settings ourselves or ask ByWater and get quick assistance.
