January 13th, 2010. ByWater Solutions and BibLibre are pleased to announce a partnership that will help meet the demands of the rapidly-growing Koha community by providing crucial support for development and migration services. ByWater Solutions’ customers will now have access to the development expertise of some of the talented individuals who helped bring us the Koha ILS ten years ago.

"This partnership" stated Brendan Gallagher, CEO of ByWater, "will insure that our customers will never have to wait in line for their development project to grow wings. By expanding the resources available to them, our customers, present and future will enjoy the true benefits of using an open source ILS; collaboration and cooperation."

Said Nicolas Morin, CEO of BibLibre: "We've been providing services for Koha for a long time now and we understand the need of US libraries to have a local partner. We feel that ByWater Solutions is in an ideal position to provide that service while we can concentrate on what we do best; provide US libraries with top notch development for Open Source software, and specifically Koha."

About BibLibre

BibLibre is the leader of Open Source solutions for Libraries, based in Europe.
