Duluth, Ga., May 24, 2021: Equinox is pleased to announce the migration of Wainfleet Township Public Library of Wainfleet, Ontario to Evergreen ILS, as it joins the Libraries in Niagara Cooperative (LiNC) and the international Evergreen ILS community.
Wainfleet Township Public Library's migration encompassed 4,106 patrons and 23,575 bibliographic records. As part of the migration Equinox provided staff training, educational resources, project management, implementation, and data services, including configuration of policies and settings. Equinox also provided bibliographic deduplication services as part of the migration.
LiNC was established in 2010 between four public libraries and one college library and has since grown to ten organizations. In 2017, the cooperative began resource sharing across the membership. "We are delighted to reach the ten library level in our consortium," said Julie Andrews, LiNC Chair. "With the assistance of Equinox, we are able to share the collections of all ten libraries with our members, widening our scope and ability to deliver resources."
"It was a privilege to work with Wainfleet and their LiNC colleagues," said Erica Rohlfs, Senior Implementation Project Manager at Equinox. "Wainfleet looked forward to their migration and becoming part of LiNC. The migration discussions were always lively and full of great questions. We are excited to collaborate with Wainfleet as they join LiNC."
