Abstract: ByWater Solutions announced that the library at Roseman University of Health Sciences is now live on their installation of the Koha integrated library system.


ByWater Solutions, an open source community contributor and America's forefront provider of Koha support, announced today that the library at Roseman University of Health Sciences is now live on their installation of the Koha integrated library system.

ByWater Solutions completed the migration for the Roseman University Library this summer and will be providing ongoing Koha support and hosting services to them. Their custom OPAC can be viewed at http://libcatalog.roseman.edu

Suzanne Fayle, Electronic Resources/Systems Librarian at Roseman University of Health Sciences talked about their choice to switch to Koha: "We needed a system that was going to be flexible & intuitive for all of our users. Koha is both & more. The ByWater staff welcomed us & the migration process could not have been easier. Continued support from ByWater has been a positive experience. They are personable & take time to answer any questions we may have as well as help us make decisions on how the system can work better for us. As system administrator I no longer dread simple tasks like importing new patron records or importing bib records. I'm thrilled to be working with ByWater & look forward to Koha's future growth!"

Nicole Engard, VP of Education welcomes ByWater's newest partners: "I had the pleasure of training the team at the Roseman University libraries and it was a pleasure. I loved their enthusiasm during training and their desire to learn all about what Koha could do for their library. I look forward to working with them for many years to come."
