Duluth, GA óJanuary 23, 2013. Caswell County Public Library has gone live on Evergreen as the eleventh library to join the NC Cardinal consortium. Equinox Software oversaw both data migration and staff training. ESI will also continue to provide on-going system administration and technical support for the entire consortium.
Almost 30,000 bib items and 9,000 patrons were migrated to the combined catalog. The online catalog for entire consortium can be viewed at www.nccardinal.org.
Equinox President, Brad LaJeunesse, says, "2013 is shaping up to be a big year for the NC Cardinal consortium. The success of the initial installations has raised a lot of interest from other libraries and given a huge amount of momentum toward a statewide system."
