Historic Deerfield Library Live On Evergreen With Equinox Support

October 9 , 2013


Duluth, GA —October 9, 2013

Equinox Software is proud to announce that Historic Deerfield Library is now live on Evergreen. Equinox oversaw data migration and staff training and has been contracted to provide ongoing technical support for the library’s Evergreen installation.

The Historic Deerfield Library is a research library operated with the Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association. Much of their 23,000 item collection has ties to local ownership and is focused on local history and life in early New England.

Shae Tetterton, Equinox Project Manager, says, "It was a pleasure working with Heather and David. Having a background in special libraries, I enjoyed exploring their unique collection. This is a wonderful addition to the Evergreen community and for Equinox."
