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

ByWater Solutions completed the migration for the Cornona Public Library's 140,000 plus volumes earlier this year and will be providing ongoing Koha support and hosting services to them. Their custom OPAC can be viewed at: http://corona.bywatersolutions.com.

Chris Tina Smith, Library Supervisor at the Corona Public Library, commented about their migration to Koha with ByWater:

"ByWater has been great to work with. We had a really short timeline to make the transition from our old ILS to Koha and the whole staff at ByWater worked with us to make sure we done with time to spare. With the onsite training, library staff were ready to go on our go-live date."

Chris Dixon, Technical Services for Corona also commented on the transition to Koha:

"The Corona Public Library went live about a month ago and we are very happy with Koha. When searching, it is very refreshing to use an ILS that is intuitive and displays relevant results in a logical manner. The ByWater staff have been extremely supportive and helpful through the migration process and have displayed their creativity and expertise when solving issues that have come up during this transition phase from our old ILS."
