Curbside Pickup

Equinox has written a new feature for the Evergreen ILS to help libraries manage curbside pickup operations. This feature allows library staff and patrons to schedule appointments for patrons to pick up their available holds. It also adds a new staff interface for managing the staging and delivery of items that have been scheduled to be picked up.

This feature is currently slated to be deployed to Sequoia on the evening of June 30, 2020 and to Canadian hosting customers on request beginning on the 30th. Equinox can also assist self-hosted customers with installing the feature starting on July 1, 2020. If you are a self-hosted Equinox customer interested in using the curbside pickup feature, please contact Support or your Account Manager.
