Norcross, GA — December 15, 2009. Bibliomation, located in Middlebury Connecticut, has selected Evergreen as their next-generation integrated library system (ILS). Equinox Software, the Evergreen Experts, will provide data migration, software configuration, and post-migration technical support.
Bibliomation will begin with a group of four pilot libraries Beacon Falls, Douglas, Slater, and Windham Public Libraries. Once the pilot phase is complete, other libraries in the network will migrate to Evergreen.
According to Bob Molyneux, Equinox Vice-President of Business Development, "Bibliomation's commitment to Evergreen is more good news for the Evergreen community. Before its first library has implemented Evergreen, the Bibliomation staff and their libraries have become actively involved in the community and the blog of its activities (BOSS: Bibliomation and Open Source Systems) is must reading. The blog not only covers Bibliomation's work with the Evergreen community but also with other open source projects."
Founded in 1980, Bibliomation has grown into the largest of the Connecticut networks. They operate as a member driven, non-profit organization with over 40 public and 24, K-12 libraries across the state. Bibliomation provides a wide array of information, telecommunications, and automation services in order to serve the ever changing technological needs of network’s member libraries.

Evergreen is robust, highly scalable, open-source library software. While Evergreen is best known for its unique ability to meet the needs of very large, high-transaction, multi-site consortia, Evergreen also elegantly scales down to the smallest library sites.
Since its debut in September 2006 as the software sustained the 270-plus libraries of the Georgia PINES consortium, Evergreen has earned acclaim and praise from users worldwide, including a Technology Collaboration Award from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Evergreen now supports hundreds of libraries of every type-public, academic, special, and school media centers. Evergreen’s rapidly expanding community is now known to power live installations in 4 countries including 10 U.S. states and 4 Canadian provinces.
