DULUTH, Ga., July 25, 2017 -- Equinox is pleased to announce that Granville County Library System successfully migrated to Evergreen within the NC Cardinal Consortium on May 18, 2017.
This Migration added over 40,000 patrons and over 110,000 bibliographic records to the NC Cardinal Consortium from the Berea Library, Richard H. Thornton Main Library, South Branch Library, Stovall Library and 3 express kiosk locations. For the migration, Equinox performed the bibliographic data extraction and deduplication, policy configuration, project management and training services. As part of the NC Cardinal consortium, Granville County Library is hosted and supported by Equinox on their industry leading Sequoia platform.
"We are honored to be a part of the NC Cardinal system and very happy to be able to continue working with Equinox. We have been impressed with the thoroughness, the diligence and helpfulness that has gone into this migration. This has been the smoothest migration that I have ever had in my 20 years working in Libraries."- Jonathan Bradsher, Director Granville County Library System
"I was very excited to hear that Granville was finally joining the Cardinal consortium and even more excited to learn that I'd have the opportunity to work with them during their migration! Even though the Granville staff had been utilizing the Evergreen ILS for a while, they were open to suggestions and eager to learn. It was a real pleasure working with the Granville staff!"-Erica Rohlfs, Equinox Project Manager
