A library automation system intended and designed for large library consortia.

(from the Evergreen documentation wiki "what is evergreen" page) Evergreen is a library automation software product. It assists libraries in day-to-day operations such as checking out materials, keeping track of patrons, and providing a web-based library catalog. The majority of the workings of Evergreen are behind the scenes, and users (or patrons) rarely see anything behind the web catalog. The library staff, on the other hand, spend much of their day utilizing the software in order to do their jobs efficiently and effectively. Evergreen calculates due dates and loan periods. It determines how many renewals a user may have. It keeps track of where all the books, CDâÃâ¬Ãâ¢s, DVDâÃâ¬Ãâ¢s, and other materials a library may own is located and their condition. The Evergreen ILS has a user-friendly web catalog that allows patrons to find what theyâÃâ¬Ãâ¢re looking for. It does all of that, and even more.
