Evergreen is an award-winning ILS developed with the intent of providing an open source product able to meet the diverse needs of consortia and high transaction public libraries. However, it has proven to be equally successful in smaller installations including special and academic libraries. Today, over 1,500 libraries across the US and Canada are using Evergreen including NC Cardinal, SC Lends, and B.C. Sitka.
