Deb Derylak, Learning Resource Center Coordinator, recently commented on the migration to Koha.

The team at Clover Park Technical College Library is so excited about our transition to Koha, with ByWater hosting and support! The migration, training, and implementation were made possible by the Office of the Secretary of State through the Washington State Library and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. With Koha as our new catalog and circulation system, the library will have much greater flexibility with our energies, services, and collections, as we respond to the information and technology needs of students, faculty, and staff all across the College. The Bywater team has been a delight to work with throughout the whole process, from helping us work through our data migration questions, to providing thorough and fun training sessions, to quickly providing great solutions to help us with our workflows. Thanks, ByWater! We are very glad to be a part of the Koha community!"
