Bethesda, MD – August 9, 2010 – The Antonelli College Library, in Cincinnati, OH has successfully launched Koha and the staff are now establishing their first automated workflow processes based around Koha's rich functionality. Koha is the world’s most widely used open source integrated library system (ILS).

Antonelli College is implementing Koha as their first ever integrated library system (ILS). The Antonelli College Library has selected LibLime’s fully-managed Koha implementation package. In this model, the system is installed, operated and maintained at one of the LibLime carrier-class data centers.

LibLime has provided Antonelli College with system installation, configuration, patron record data migration, staff training, and annual maintenance/ hosting. The staff are already using Koha to prepare their catalog for end user access later this school year.

"We are very excited to have migrated to our Koha production server, so that we can now begin the process of cataloging our collection. We are hoping to have the current collection cataloged by sometime this Fall, so we can start focusing on acquiring new materials and opening the library for use by our students, faculty, and staff," said College Librarian, Tracey Stivers.
