The San Diego County Public Law Library goes live on Koha with ByWater Solutions

ByWater Solutions, an open source community contributor and America’s forefront provider of Koha support, announced today that the San Diego Law Library, of San Diego, CA, is now live on Koha! ByWater Solutions completed the migration of the library’s four branches, and 150,000 plus holdings from Millennium and is providing ongoing Koha support and hosting services to them. The library’s customized Koha OPAC can be viewed at: https://catalog.sandiegolawlibrary.org/

Laurel Moran, Head of Core Operations at the library, commented on their experience moving to Koha with ByWater:

We are having a great time exploring our new system and will soon enjoy bringing our library members some exciting new changes in functionality. We especially appreciate the partnership aspects of belonging to the Koha community and ByWater Solutions support. We received excellent training from Jessie and others at ByWater before our Go Live. The entire migration process was a great opportunity to re-examine all of our processes and I believe it has made us a better library in many ways. We are glad we made the change!
