Ten years ago, something remarkable happened. A brand new open source ILS went live in over 200 libraries across the state of Georgia. While the migration happened in a matter of days, it was the culmination of two years’ worth of work by a small team.

Today, that same open source ILS is utilized by more than 1,500 libraries all over the United States, Canada, and across the world. The small team has grown into an active community, supporting and improving the software each year. That software is Evergreen and Equinox is beyond proud to be the leading provider of support and development services for it.

As we approach Evergreen’s tenth birthday–Labor Day weekend–we’ll look at each year of Evergreen’s life. Equinox Team Members will be posting a blog post each day leading up to Labor Day, beginning on Thursday, August 18 (That’s tomorrow! Yay!).  Join us as we take a closer look at the software that has brought so many people together.
