2017 Hack-A-Way Results!

Several bugs fixes and patches affecting Evergreen Indiana are the result of what some Evergreen developers are calling “one of the most productive [Hack-A-Ways] (if not the most)” to date! Among them are the search fixes announced on the Support listserv and the patch to port Copy Templates from the staff client to the web client. All completed fixes and patches have already been loaded on our servers.

First Cataloging Party in Swayzee


We had an amazing turnout for the Swayzee Cataloging Party this week! 6 libraries sent staff as well as local staff and several board members, bringing our total to 18 participants. We cataloged 1,234 items and assisted with pulling materials to weed, with guest catalogers working on Adult Nonfiction and the home team fielding Adult Fiction. In the pictures above, you’ll see the weeding team working on the rear bookcases and catalogers at the tables/desk. We also greatly appreciate those staff who served as runners for the day, getting materials to the catalogers and then back to the shelves. Thanks to Dana and team for supplying a terrific spread of food to keep us all going!

Committee Report

The eContent Committee met on August 8, 2017 at the State Library. The committee approved a transition to allowing Advantage accounts for the eIDC group using the Advantage Plus program. The policy is being updated with the shared terms of the Advantage Plus configuration and will undergo review as an electronic ballot by the committee. Additional details of the policy, what the program will do, and implementation will be release to the community shortly!

The Executive Committee met on August 8, 2017 at the State Library. The meeting was recorded and may be viewed on Youtube. There were several significant decisions made:

  • The proposed revision to the “equipment” circulation modifier was approved. The community will be notified once the new circ mod is available.
  • The auto-deletion of materials in problematic statuses after 5 years without resolution was approved with implementation on November 15, 2017. Additional information, including report recommendations so you can prepare your collection, will be released to the Support and Cataloging Listservs.
  • The committee voted to retain Montie Manning as a Class C-At large representative for the remainder of his term.
  • The committee selected their support regions for the 2017/18 term. This information can be found on the Communications page under Leadership Contact Lists: List / Interactive Map
  • The committee approved a protocol for disciplinary action for libraries which do not pay their EIPP invoices in a timely fashion. A separate notice of this protocol as well as a direct contact by your regional support person will follow to all member libraries.

Additional discussion without action was held for improving search result sort order, developing a new reports interface, and online registration. These issues will be revisited for action.

Both committees will meet again on October 10. 2017.
