Lee County Public Library Joins NC Cardinal Goes Live on Evergreen

August 1 , 2012


Duluth, GA — August 1, 2012

Lee County Public Library in North Carolina has gone live with Evergreen as part of the NC Cardinal Project. Equinox Software provided data migration and training services and will continue to provide ongoing technical support for the growing consortium.

Lee County is the 8th of 9 pilot libraries scheduled to go live. NC Cardinal will eventually become a large network of many North Carolina libraries committed to the goal of sharing resources to provide open access to library holdings to all users no matter where they live. The online catalog for the consortium can be viewed at www.nccardinal.org.

"It has been very exciting to watch as this new consortium has come together in North Carolina,” says Equinox President, Brad LaJeunesse. “The pilot libraries have worked very hard to make this a success, and we look forward to partnering with future libraries as NC Cardinal continues to grow."
