At William Jessup University, we are committed to helping each of our students become exceptionally employable. Often times, students have a small skills gap that they aren’t able to fulfill by taking an entire class at WJU. Maybe they’re a ministry major that needs some basic design skills, or an English student who would like to know how to develop one of their creative stories into a game.

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.
