Enica Davis, Data Migration Librarian at ByWater Solutions, recently commented on the migration:

Catamount Library Network, Dorset Village Public Library, and Winhall Memorial Library are a very nice group of librarians to work with! Both libraries are looking forward to getting their collection more organized and streamlining some of their workflows. Lastly, since I am now a Vermont-er, it makes me very happy to see more Vermont libraries moving to Koha and Aspen!"
