Nancy Keener (Systems Librarian), Debi Stears (Resources Librarian) and Todd Goatley-Seals (ByWater Support) will talk about their experiences with Koha and demonstrate it's many features. Nancy as the Systems Librarian was responsible for finding an affordable ILS in 2011 and manages Koha for the Washoe County Library System.  Todd, who worked for Nancy at the time was instrumental in bringing Koha to the attention of Washoe County and today works for Koha's largest support vendor, ByWater Solutions.  Debi Stears has since been the spearhead to getting the acquisitions module fully automated and is a forward thinking user.
