Abstract: LibLime and WALDO welcome the Cathedral Seminary House of Formation to the LibLime Academic Koha development group. The Cathedral Seminary has selected LibLime Academic Koha to replace its legacy ILS because of the advanced functionality of the features designed and deployed by the WALDO Development Group, as well as, the cost savings in annual support, maintenance, and hosting. LibLime will provide its professional implementation services to the Cathedral Seminary, including project management, data migration, system configuration, and functional & administrative training.


North Bethesda, MD, July 9, 2015. LibLime, a division of PTFS, and WALDO (Westchester Academic Library Director's Organization) are proud to welcome the Cathedral Seminary House of Formation to the LibLime Academic Koha development group. The Cathedral Seminary has selected LibLime Academic Koha to replace its legacy ILS because of the advanced functionality of the features designed and deployed by the WALDO Development Group, as well as, the cost savings in annual support, maintenance, and hosting. LibLime will provide its professional implementation services to the Cathedral Seminary, including project management, data migration, system configuration, and functional & administrative training.

Migrating to LibLime Academic Koha will minimize internal IT resources at the Cathedral Seminary as LibLime Academic Koha is a completely web-based solution, and LibLime will provide hosting and maintenance using its distributed computing cloud platform.

The Cathedral Seminary will join the WALDO Development group, an active partnership of academic and research libraries working to enhance LibLime Academic Koha. The ideas from the Cathedral Seminary will expand LibLime Academic Koha functionality in areas related to technology in an academic setting.

About Cathedral Seminary House of Formation

The mission of Cathedral Seminary House of Formation is ultimately the preparation of candidates for ordained priestly ministry in the Roman Catholic Church through spiritual, intellectual, apostolic, and human formation. Cathedral Seminary House of Formation is for seminarians attending college or those who need the necessary philosophy before entering theological studies. Undergraduate seminarians live at Cathedral Seminary House of Formation and attend classes at a variety of Colleges and Universities in the New York Metropolitan area. Pre-Theology seminarians are men who have successfully completed an undergraduate degree but find they are in need of philosophy credits before moving on to the major seminary. During a two year course of study and formation these men are able to obtain the necessary prerequisites for theological studies.
