    North Bethesda, MD, April 11, 2013- With the inclusion of the Arapahoe Public Library bibliographic, patron, and circulation transaction records, LibLime has completed the Pioneer Consortium Phase One library migration project. All of the member libraries are now live on LibLime Koha 4.14.

    For nearly two years, LibLime Project Managers have been working with Pioneer Consortium staff members to migrate bibliographic, item, patron, and circulation transaction data from their legacy ILS systems to LibLime Koha 4.14. A total of 28 libraries representing 18 autonomous library systems throughout the state of Nebraska are now using LibLime Koha to manage their collections. Following the completion of the Pioneer Consortium migration, there are nearly 600,000 bibliographic records, 1.52 million item records, and 332,000+ patron records in the LibLime Koha union catalog.

    About the Pioneer Consortium
    The Pioneer Consortium continues to expand the number of members that share the LibLime Koha union catalog. The successes of the early members of the consortium are noticed by more and more libraries around the state and the consortium membership continues to grow. One of the main attractions is access to the LibLime Koha union catalog.
