    CLiC, headquartered in Centennial, Colorado, serves over 400 libraries throughout the state. 35 of these libraries are part of the AspenCat LibLime Koha union catalog.

    ByWater Solutions, an open source community supporter and the U.S.’ forefront provider of Koha ( support, announced today that the John A. Graziano Memorial Library at Samuel Merritt University is now live on their installation of the Koha integrated library system.

    “Samuel Merritt University is delighted to have switched to the community version of Koha. In 2008, having experienced firsthand the disadvantages of proprietary systems and vendor lock-in, and recognizing the advantages of open source software and the strength of the Koha community, we migrated to a hosted version of Koha. But our vendor replaced its offering of the community version of Koha with its own proprietary fork, putting us back where we started. With our migration to ByWater Solutions, we have a capable partner as we push the boundaries of what is possible with an ILS, and we’re able to benefit from and contribute to the expertise and camaraderie of the diverse and collaborative Koha community.”
