We've included a total of thirty enhancement requests, covering the following categories: Acquisitions, Cataloging, Checkout/Checkin, Holds, Miscellaneous, Notices, Patrons, and Searching. This Evergreen Enhancement Request for Development quote is being sent out to select developers with the deadline of Friday, September 14th. Our enhancement development funds are not unlimited so we'll have to decide from that list which ones we can afford to include in this wave of development.
If you're curious to see our enhancement request list for development, you can view it here.
If you have questions about this post, you can email Amy Terlaga at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Bibliomation came up on Evergreen 2.0 on June 3, 2011. Since then, we've upgraded to 2.2 and TPAC, with countless small fixes (including some backported 2.1 features) along the way.
Since we've been live, we've circulated 5.7 million items, and we've added 891,000 items and 61,274 patrons. A healthy year, to be sure.
Our little Evergreen sapling has matured and will keep getting stronger. Each patch, tweak, and upgrade has improved Evergreen and made life under this growing tree just that much better.

We're coming into the home stretch of our migration-filled two years. The Warren Public Library is automating for the first time and plans to go live on November 7th. Bridgeport Public Library will be re-joining Bibliomation with a go live date of November 14th.

For most of Bibliomation's schools, the first day has been delayed thanks to Irene. However, our friends at Equinox software got their data transferred into our Evergreen servers before the storm hit. Bibs, items, and students are all ready to go for our school media specialists once they have electricity to access them.
We're still training (and rescheduling hurricane-disrupted trainings) and working out new routines and workflows with the schools, but their data is ready to go. Next up, Bridgeport Public Library!

On June 7, 2011, all of Bibliomation’s public libraries became Evergreen libraries. This fall, the school libraries will start their year with Evergreen and two more public libraries will join Bibliomation, bringing our total public library membership to 60.
We’ve been up and running on Evergreen for almost two months now and while it hasn’t been entirely smooth sailing (what migration ever is), we’re finding our way and establishing some best practices as we go.
We’re over the moon about Ben Shum’s work automating our monthly reports and Jessica Venturo’s reports in the staff client. We’ve got data any which way our libraries want it. Now that we’re settling in to circulation and cataloging in Evergreen, Mary Llewellyn is forging ahead with acquisitions and serials. We’re bringing our libraries’ feedback about these two newest components of Evergreen as well as everything else in our new ILS back to the community and we’re building a wishlist for future development.
Bibliomation is excited to be a part of the Evergreen community and we can’t wait to build an even brighter future for our libraries and our ILS!
