Duluth, GA — March 3, 2014. The Forsyth County Public Library has officially joined NC Cardinal live on Evergreen. Equinox oversaw implementation and staff training and will continue to provide ongoing system administration, hosting, and technical support for the growing consortium.
The Forsyth County Public Library consists of ten branches and serves over 159,000 patrons. They are the 17th library to join the NC Cardinal consortium. Their new online catalog can be viewed at http://forsyth.nccardinal.org/eg/opac/home.
Equinox Project Manager, Shae Tetterton, says, "Forsyth was excited from day one about their transition to Evergreen. This made the project fun for all parties and resulted in a very smooth migration. With such an amazing staff and support from the State Library, I see this group being leaders in their own consortium and the larger Evergreen community."

Evergreen is an award-winning ILS developed with the intent of providing an open source product able to meet the diverse needs of consortia and high transaction public libraries. However, it has proven to be equally successful in smaller installations including special and academic libraries. Today, almost 1200 libraries across the US and Canada are using Evergreen including NC Cardinal, SC Lends, and B.C. Sitka.
