Calling All Catalogers: Spring Roundtable

Coming on May 19, 2016: Experienced Evergreen Indiana cataloguers will guide you through the screen information and many uses for Item Status and Copy Buckets. Whether you’re making batch item edits, batch call number changes, tracking special items, or deleting items, these two features are powerful tools to help make catalogue maintenance easier in Evergreen Indiana.

Registration is open; please use the links below in the Upcoming Trainings section.

Migration News

The Eckhart Public Library and Garrett Public Library migrations have been tentatively scheduled for August 1, 2016.


Our vendor has requested a change to our barcode/library card contract which would significantly increase the price. We are in active negotiations, but recommend that you plan on using the May pool if you want to lock in the current pricing ($.20/card). The pool will open on May 2, please prepare your orders now.
