Member Resources

Member libraries have the opportunity to share many different resources. As a unified catalog system we share bibliographic and patron records and Policies & Procedures, but we also share digital content, training materials, forms, catalog enhancements, cataloging tools, promotional materials, and expertise!

The Evergreen Indiana consortium currently contracts with EBSCO for NoveList Select to provide catalog enhancements including book covers, literary reviews, awards, read-alikes, series information, contents, and excerpts for all members. A group purchasing discount on the RDA Toolkit is available for member libraries transitioning to the new RDA cataloging standards. The eContent governance subcommittee coordinates and negotiates consortium level purchasing and discounts for eContent providers like OverDrive, Freegal, Pronunciator, Wowbrary, and more.

Member libraries are able to purchase item barcodes and library cards at a discounted rate as part of the Evergreen Indiana buying pool. Due to the high level of inter-library lending among members, Evergreen Indiana libraries automatically qualify for subsidies on INfoExpress deliveries.
