Georgia libraries win award for Evergreen

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has named the Georgia Public Library Service as one of 10 recipients of the second annual Mellon Awards for Technology Collaboration. The $50,000 grant recognizes GPLS for the development and release of the Evergreen open-source library automation system.

The Mellon Awards honor not-for-profit organizations for leadership in the collaborative development of open-source software tools with particular application to higher education and cultural heritage not-for-profit activities. The awards were presented Dec. 10. Click here for the full story.

MLC is partnering with Grand Rapids Public Library on a Michigan Evergreen project to develop a shared library system using Georgia’s Evergreen software. For information, please see our Michigan Evergreen blog.

Congratulations to Georgia! And a big “thank you” for making Evergreen available to the rest of us via open source!
