Atlanta, Ga., September 19, 2022: Equinox Open Library Initiative, a trusted leader in open source technology development and support for libraries, is looking forward to presenting at the 2022 Missouri Library Association Conference to be held at the Oasis Hotel and Convention Center in Springfield, Missouri, from September 28 through September 30, 2022. Equinox's Erica Rohlfs will be presenting "Migrating Non-Automated Libraries onto Missouri Evergreen," on Friday, September 30, 2022 at 11:00 a.m.CDT. The Equinox team will be in attendance and available throughout the event.
"This presentation demystifies the migration process for non-automated libraries," said Erica Rohlfs, Senior Implementation Project Manager at Equinox. "We'll answer questions about the implementation process and provide recommendations to support change management for the community and staff. It's a doable process and it helps to see it all laid out from start to finish by libraries who have been there."
Erica Rohlfs will be presenting alongside Megan Bishop of Reynolds County Library and Sue Lightfoot-Horine from Livingston County Library. The presentation highlights two different experiences migrating to Evergreen ILS as part of the Missouri Evergreen Consortium.
The Missouri Evergreen Consortium is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which began in 2012 and is now celebrating its 10th year supporting libraries across the state of Missouri. Learn more at: http://moevergreenlibraries.org/
