Bethesda, MD – September 22, 2011 – Memphis College of Art, in Memphis, Tennessee, has successfully implemented Koha with LibLime as their next generation, open source ILS. Library Director, Leslie Holland and her staff choose LibLime Academic Koha because of its rich functionality, designed by academic librarians, for academic librarians, and is eager to begin working with those academic librarians to continue development on LibLime Academic Koha.
"The Memphis College of Art has experienced unprecedented growth within both the student body and the physical campus over the last few years. The Library needed an ILS that would accommodate our addition of a resource center, be compatible and evolve with current technology, and offer more features. We were struggling with an unstable platform and needed to make a transition within a matter of weeks lest our previous system refuse to be revived that 'one last time'. LibLime was able to transition us quickly and smoothly, and now we can all rest easier knowing our library data is safe."
