The Colorado Library Consortium (CLiC) was awarded a 2012-2013 LSTA grant to help pay migration costs for several small rural libraries to AspenCat, a union catalog of 35 small public, school, academic, and special libraries. AspenCat runs on an open source Koha system that collectively shares over 600,000 items, plus an eBook collection on the 3M Cloud platform. The new libraries will be migrated from December 2012-September 2013. They include Northern Saguache Library District, Conejos County Library District, Berthoud Community Library, La Veta Public Library, Lyons Depot Library, and Norwood Public Library. We anticipate another one to three libraries will also take advantage of this unique opportunity. The Lyons Depot Library conversion will be done manually using library school students, library, and CLiC staff. For more information contact Lisa Priebe,
