FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Norcross, GA —June 14, 2011
Sage Library System of Eastern Oregon has added nine new libraries to Evergreen. The former Gorge Link libraries: Hood River County Library District (3), Hood River Valley High School, Sherman County Public/School Library, Planetree Health Center, and The Dalles/Wasco County Service District (3) are now live on Evergreen. Equinox Software oversaw data migration for the new libraries and will continue to provide technical support for all the Sage Libraries.
The Sage Library System of Oregon consists of 76 academic, public, school and special libraries in 15 counties. Eastern Oregon University Library, one of the Sage members, provides hosting services for the consortium and serves as a major courier hub.
Brad LaJeunesse, CEO of Equinox, says, “The latest libraries to join Sage really show how diverse Evergreen is with academic, public, school, and medical libraries all running on one system that is able to meet the unique needs of each library. We are looking forward to continuing our work with the Sage consortium.
According to Jayne Guidinger, “Equinox is so easy to work with on our migration. Our Go Live was so smooth that I couldn't believe it. Equinox staff response to issues was immediate. It has been a great experience.”
Evergreen is a robust, open-source integrated library system best known for its unique ability to meet the needs of very large, high-transaction, multi-site consortia. However, it has also proven equally successful scaled down for even the smallest libraries.
Since its debut in September 2006, the software has sustained the 280-plus libraries of the Georgia PINES consortium. Evergreen has earned acclaim and praise from users worldwide, including a Technology Collaboration Award from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Evergreen now supports almost 1000 libraries of every type-public, academic, special, and school media centers. Evergreen’s rapidly expanding community includes libraries across 4 countries including 18 U.S. states and 8 Canadian provinces.
