About the Program

ByWater is a company of librarians for librarians supporting a product that was created by librarians for librarians. We have developed Koha Klassmates as a way to give back to the community and provide a dedicated, free hosted Koha installation for library schools nationwide. Our vision is that the Klassmates program empowers library school instructors with a real open source ILS for students to explore and get hands-on experience before starting that first job in a library. They will have the background knowledge of how a fully functional, web-based ILS functions.
