[Web4lib] Koha

Hello all,

We turned to Bywater (http://bywatersolutions.com/) for our migration to Koha and ongoing hosted ILS service. We have been very happy with them. Our conversations with LibLime and PTFS, pre-merger-talks, were far less pleasant. I ended up not considering them options, open source or no open source.

Hope this one data point helps or at least is interesting.

  But you have to get the one http://koha-community.org.  Don't buy
  the one vended by LibLime/PTFS. I read some time ago that most of
  their customers are not happy. I think that was in a tech source
  report from Marshall.

  If you run Debian, there are packages for koha that make
  the installation a breeze.
