ByWater Solutions, an open source community contributor and America’s forefront provider of Koha support, announced today that Michigan Jewish Institute, of Southfield, MI is now live on their installation of the Koha integrated library system.

ByWater Solutions completed the migration for the Michigan Jewish Institute earlier this year and will be providing ongoing Koha support and hosting services to them. Their custom OPAC can be viewed at http://mji.bywatersolutions.com

Brendan Gallagher, CEO of ByWater stated:

“It was great to get to help the team at the Michigan Jewish Institute upgrade to the latest version of Koha. We look forward to continuing our work together through their support contract.”

About Michigan Jewish Institute Library:

MJI’s Main Campus Library, housed at our main campus in West Bloomfield, parallels the college’s academic interests by offering a collection of technological, business and Judaic materials that are frequently cited by MJI faculty during course delivery. Most course syllabi refer to use of various library materials and students are expected to make use of these materials via required or suggested readings and research. MJI is a participating member of the Michicard System. This valuable resource allows students enrolled at MJI to use participating public libraries and over thirty academic collegiate libraries located in Michigan.

Koha is the first open-source Integrated Library System (ILS). In use worldwide, its development is steered by a growing community of libraries collaborating to achieve their technology goals.

It includes modules for circulation, cataloging, acquisitions, serials, reserves, patron management, branch relationships, and more.
