About the library

Evergreen Open-Source Integrated Library System (ILS)

What is Evergreen?

William Jessup University's Paul Nystrom Library uses an innovative open-source Integrated Library System called Evergreen. Evergreen was developed originally by a consortium of public libraries in Georgia. In late 2008, WJU became one of the first academic libraries to implement Evergreen. It has been a stable product.
