Weekly Update — April 18, 2016
Welcome Starke County!
On April 13, 2016, Starke County Public Library System opened their doors as an Evergreen Indiana library! Adding 4 locations and approximately 100,000 items to the consortium statistics, Starke County is the 108th active member of Evergreen Indiana. Our thanks go out to neighboring libraries Culver-Union Township, Fulton County, and Newton County for sending staff to support our newest member library.
A post-migration deduplication reduced the total catalog count by approximately 65K records. The match and merge rate for Starke County’s records was nearly 50%!
We’ll be attending the 2016 Evergreen International Conference this week, so please allow a bit of additional time for responses to queries and tickets.
The next barcode/library card pool opens on May 2. Please check your stocks now!
