The first Evergreen International Online Conference drew over 350 registrants for the June 9 through 11 event.
Always quick to adapt, the open source community of Evergreen users moved to an online conference as a late substitution for the in-person Evergreen International Conference that had been scheduled for April in Atlanta but was cancelled due to the pandemic.
Most of the original presenters moved their programs online, plus the program included some interest group discussions and even a virtual happy hour to allow participants to mingle online in a more social setting. Sessions included OPAC usability, reports, security, database updating, self-check and coming enhancements.
The average participant attended six online sessions among the 23 sessions presented in two simultaneous tracks over three afternoons. The conference also included a keynote by John Rempel. John oversees initiatives related to digital accessibility and user experience (UX), including the AccessGA and Web Accessibility Group (WAG), services to Higher Ed, non-profits and industry in Georgia and across the country.
The sessions were recorded and are now available on The Evergreen Project YouTube channel in accessible format at https://tinyurl.com/Evergreen2020conf
