Abstract: ByWater Solutions announced that the Salisbury Free Library of Salisbury, NH. is now live on their Koha open source integrated library system.


ByWater Solutions, an open source community contributor and America's forefront provider of Koha support, announced today that the Salisbury Free Library of Salisbury, NH. is now live on their Koha open source integrated library system.

ByWater Solutions has completed the migration of the Libraries' more than 10,000 titles earlier this year and is providing ongoing hosting and support services to the library. The Salisbury Free Library's customized online catalog can be viewed at: http://salisbury.bywatersolutions.com

Mindy Flater, Director of the library, commented on their experience moving to Koha with ByWater:

"We moved to Koha nine months ago from, if you can believe it, stamping books and borrower's cards. It's been like going from a horse-drawn buggy to a Ferrari! We are very happy with Koha and ByWater's support and our patrons really appreciate all the added convenience of an automated system too."

About Koha

Koha is the first open-source Integrated Library System (ILS). In use worldwide, its development is steered by a growing community of libraries collaborating to achieve their technology goals. Koha's impressive feature set continues to evolve and expand to meet the needs of its user base. It includes modules for circulation, cataloging, acquisitions, serials, reserves, patron management, branch relationships, and more.

Koha's OPAC, circulation, management and self-checkout interfaces are all based on standards-compliant World Wide Web technologies–HTML5, CSS and Javascript–making Koha a truly platform-independent solution.
