Duluth, GA — August 20, 2012. The Berklee College of Music Stan Getz Library has gone live with Evergreen as their next generation ILS. Equinox Software provided data migration and training services and will continue to provide technical support. In addition, Equinox Software provided development services to allow for Song Title Indexing in Evergreen.
According to Brad LaJeunesse, Equinox President, "Migrating a music library was a unique challenge for us and a first for Evergreen. We enjoyed working with the Berklee staff and look forward to continuing to assist them with technical needs for their installation."
Located in Boston, The Berklee College of Music is the world's largest independent college of contemporary music. Collectively, their alumni have won over 200 Grammy Awards. The Stan Getz Library contains over 33,000 music recordings, almost 28,000 books, and 23,000 musical scores. The new online catalog powered by Evergreen can be viewed at http://catalog.berklee.edu
