[OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Evergreen Start Up Questions

Hi all,

I am researching the transition from a commercial ILS system to an open source ILS system and have a couple questions:

1. What commercial system was PINES using prior to the Evergreen implementation?

2. Was the previous system supporting a consortia or did the consortia form after the Evergreen implementation?

3. If so, did each library maintain its own installation that talked to a central system or was the original commercial implementation completely centralized? (I have read about the 5 year contract expiring and wonder if each server at each institution was expiring at the same time or only one at a central location)

Any info would be greatly appreciated! 

Thanks so much,

Jami Miller
