Hi all,

I'm sending along an update on our project to move acquisitions to 
Angular. The MassLNC Evergreen Development Initiative and Georgia PINES 
have committed to funding the entire set of technical specifications for 
this very important next step in web client development. Many thanks to 
the partners in the Development Initiative for supporting this project: 
CW MARS, NOBLE, Bibliomation, BC Libraries, Georgia PINES, Evergreen 
Indiana, Lake Agassiz Regional Library / Northwest Regional Library and 
Howe Library.

We expect to receive our first quote to code this project in the fall 
with the quotes for the final sprints arriving at the beginning of 2019. 
At that time, we will be seeking funding from the community to move this 
project forward. As you plan your development budgets, please consider 
setting aside some funds for this project so that we can look forward to 
seeing revamped acquisitions interfaces as soon as possible.

Feel free to let us know if you have any questions.

Thank you!
