ATHENS, OH--September 25, 2008--LibLime, the leader in open-source solutions for libraries, announced today that Mary Moules has joined LibLime as Project Manager.
Mary comes to LibLime from OCLC where she served as Senior Implementation Program Manager for WorldCat Local installations. Prior to that, Mary worked for Ex Libris (formerly Endeavor Information Systems) where she held the title 'Manager, Implementation Department ' and directed all activities of eight project managers and consultants in the Project Services division for digital and library management systems. She holds an MLS from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
"Mary has over 15 years of experience in management, training, customer service and project management," says Joshua Ferraro, CEO of LibLime. "Her commitment to balancing customer and project management needs makes her a great fit for the LibLime team."
Mary adds: "I am very excited to be joining the LibLime team. LibLime's emphasis on customer service, coupled with open-source solutions, is a compelling combination that is of great benefit to libraries. I'm looking forward to working closely with LibLime's growing customer base."
About LibLime's Software Development Practices
LibLime operates on an open-source business model where the development process is steered by a community, rather than a vendor. LibLime customers take full advantage of this model by sponsoring enhancements that are then shared with the whole community. The result is very rapid development cycles, customer-driven features and a high overall Return on Investment.
Software that LibLime creates using this model is widely available at no cost, which leads to the misconception that the company "sells free software". LibLime sells services (e.g., hosting, installation, data migration, development, training and maintenance) that help facilitate the open-source process for libraries.
