Abstract: ByWater Solutions announced that the University of Washington’s Templeton Radiology Library in Seattle, WA 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 University of Washington's Templeton Radiology Library in Seattle, WA is now live on their installation of the Koha integrated library system.

ByWater Solutions has completed the migration for Templeton Radiology Library and will be providing ongoing Koha Support services. Their custom mobile-friendly OPAC can be viewed at http://lib.rad.washington.edu/.

Kimberly Tate, Templeton Radiology Library, talked about her decision to use Koha support services through ByWater Solutions:

"We at the Templeton Radiology Library needed to provide consistent and reliable access to our collection. However, we did not have the personnel resources to migrate and update our system on our own without sacrificing other library services. Choosing ByWater Solutions ensured that our patron and collection data was in good hands without the stress typically associated with migrating or updating an ILS."
