Dunkirk Public Library is a proud member of the Evergreen consortium. To access Evergreen's Home Page and Catalog, please visit:
Evergreen Indiana is a growing consortium of 100 public, school and
institutional libraries located throughout Indiana that use the
Evergreen ILS. Patrons of member libraries can use their Evergreen
Indiana library card to view the catalogs and borrow materials from the
other member libraries.
The Evergreen Indiana catalog holds over 2.8 million bibliographic records and provides access to over 6.6 million items.
The Evergreen Indiana project, is being funded by the Indiana State Library through Library Services and Technology Act grants. The services provided by the State Library include purchasing and maintaining the central servers, personnel costs in operating the system, training, software development, data conversion, and other related expenses.
In 2008, the Indiana State Library enlisted the services and expertise of Equinox Software, Inc.
to develop a comprehensive migration strategy for Indiana libraries.
With a migration strategy in place, the 20 pilot libraries elected the
first Evergreen Indiana Executive Committee
and commenced the development of the consortium’s policies and
procedures. Evergreen Indiana's policies, as adopted by the Executive
Committee, are at Evergreen Indiana Policies and Procedures.
