Academic Evergreen

Lorcan 1 min read

From a news item on the library website at Prince Edward Island University announcing the introduction of the Evergreen library system ….

The only permanent change arising from this transition will be a positive one: a brand-new Library catalogue! We’ll be making lots of improvements to the catalogue search and display over the summer, and your feedback will be critical in this process. We are the first academic library anywhere to adopt the Evergreen/IslandPines system, making UPEI a world leader in innovative, open-source technology, and giving us unprecedented flexibility in making repairs and enhancements to our catalogue and other systems. If you have any suggestions, comments, or concerns, please let us know!

[Evergreen]

Mark Leggott has been tracking progress in his blog – they began the transition on May 31 (a sample entry here).
You can check out the catalog here.
