The Coding has been Completed!

We have heard from Equinox - the coding for our K-12 schools/academics due date functionality has been completed!

The functionality centers around end-of-school year and hard due dates. One enhancement will allow schools to apply an end-of-year due date for their students' items. As the school year nears a close, no items will check out past this date. The other enhancement, the hard due date, will be used for faculty - they can check items out at any time during the school year and the items will be due at the end of the year.

For these two enhancements, Bibliomation had partnered with four library systems:
  • Conifer (Ontario, Canada)
  • Sage Library System (Oregon)
  • Kirtland Community College (Michigan)
  • MassLNC (Massachusetts)
This functionality will be added to the next releases of Evergreen and we will be able to test it for our 22 K-12 schools. The Lebanon Schools, already on Evergreen, will be able to use the enhancements for the end of their school year this June.

Evergreen Software Development - News

Bibliomation's Melissa Lefebvre and Ben Shum submitted an Evergreen software enhancement that was recently accepted by the Evergreen community. Their "New Search" button has been added to versions and 2.0. This button opens up a new Advanced Search tab from within the Evergreen staff client. It is a very nice addition!

Many people ask, "Just who are the core software committers to Evergreen?" This list of software developers is constantly expanding, but to see who currently has commit privileges to Evergreen trunk, you can go to

Bibliomation is very pleased to have our software enhancement make it into the latest releases of Evergreen!
