Hi Carolyn,

We are also using Horizon and evaluating Evergreen as a potential ILS.

We don't use our ILS for database authentication. We use EZProxy with CUFTS,
open source electronic resource management tools developed by Simon Fraser
University: http://researcher.sfu.ca/cufts

If we migrated to Evergreen it wouldn't affect how we use CUFTS and EZProxy
to manage, organize and provide access to journal article databases.

Let me know if you've got questions about how we are using CUFTS, or contact
SFU directly (http://researcher.sfu.ca/contact)
