Evergreen Upgrades


General information

PLS will be upgrading our version of the Evergreen software from version 2.7 to 2.10.4 on the evening of Wednesday, June 15.

This requires taking down all Evergreen services, including all staff client functions and the online catalog. Evergreen servers could be down all evening but should be ready when libraries open Thursday morning.

New Features

A list of new features and other differences can be viewed here:
