Registration is now open for the annual Evergreen International Conference,
returning in-person  April 26-29, 2023, in Worcester, Massachusetts,
offering presentations and discussions for users of the Evergreen library
management system and those interested in finding out more about the open
source software and its community.

“Community at the Heart of Evergreen” is the theme for the conference,
reflecting both that librarians and other members of the Evergreen
community design and produce the open source system for the library
community, and the location of the conference in the heart of New England.

Two and a half days of programs by community members cover a range of
interests and concerns, including communicating with consortium members,
burnout, improving customer service, hosting options, and system security,
in addition to programs on upcoming enhancements and Evergreen system
modules.    Nine specialized interest and working group meetings provide
attendees with opportunities to discuss and share.

“Data Security and Patron Privacy in Today’s Library” is the focus of the
keynote address by David Leonard, President of the Boston Public Library.
Leonard will share his insights, experience and recommendations on
cybersecurity reflecting on the BPL’s ransomware attack in 2021.

Preconference plans for Wednesday, April 26th include programs on the
building and releasing of Evergreen software, converting to Linux, using
Git, and accessibility in Evergreen.  Wednesday also offers separate
Hackfests for development and documentation, an opportunity for community

Early bird registration ends on February 17th.
