ByWater Solutions, America's forefront provider of Open Source library technology support, announced today that the Salina Public Library in Kansas is live on Aspen LiDA. The Salina Public Library is ByWater Solution's first library to go live on library-branded LiDA.
The app can be found by searching "Salina Public Library" into either app store.
Jordan Fields, Aspen Product Librarian, recently commented on the development:
We're very excited Salina Public Library is launching library-branded LiDA for their community! Salina patrons can now easily find exactly the right app; all they need to do is search the app stores for their library by name. As with every version of LiDA, Salina's logo and colors match their branding to provide a seamless experience with Aspen Discovery!
