Bethesda, MD – January 25, 2011 – LibLime, a Division of PTFS, and WALDO (Westchester Academic Library Directors Organization) have announced that D'Youville College has successfully migrated to Koha.

D'Youville has selected the LibLime – PTFS fully-managed Koha package. In this model, the system is installed, operated and maintained at one of LibLime – PTFS carrier-class data centers. LibLime – PTFS provided D'Youville with installation, data migration, systems configuration, software development and staff training. As a member of the WALDO consortium D'Youville will take advantage of the discounts available to WALDO members for LibLime - PTFS services.

"Having trained D'Youville College many years ago on their previous ILS, it was exciting to help them transition from the restrictions of proprietary software to the freedom of Open Source. The staff were a pleasure to work with, and we welcome them to the Koha family," said Maria Laude, Customer Liaison Librarian.
