Bethesda, MD July 19, 2011 The Trinity Lutheran College of Everett, WA has selected LibLime as their vendor of choice to implement and support LibLime Koha, as their next generation, open source, Integrated Library System (ILS). The Trinity Lutheran College Library Director, Seong-heon Lee, was formerly at the Chicago Theological Seminary where he became familiar with LibLime Koha functionality, as well as the quality of service provided by Liblime.

"I was amazed with the Liblime Koka team", Seong-heon said. "From our ordering through system implementation, we did have great support. Questions got immediate answers with good solutions. I liked KOHA because it is a web-based system. We can carry the system, even the cataloging module, into deep stack areas. It was so convenient to go around stacks checking our book records and fix problems on site. Liblime offers a reasonable price for the libraries that think about alternative ways of managing their library system. It is really worth checking out for any library."
