Being a smaller sized library, we weren’t sure if it would be possible for us to support a move to open source, but Equinox has made every step of the migration, training, and implementation of Evergreen run so smoothly.
Working with Equinox has been like night and day. It's amazing to have a system so accessible to our patrons and easy to use. It has super-charged our library lending power!
As a small special library, we appreciate that Equinox’s support framework is scalable and adaptable. The Equinox team has been fabulous to work with – each member is knowledgeable, responsive to our unique needs, and responds in a timely manner.
We are excited about the quality of access and services we are able to deliver with Koha alongside support by Equinox.
OCALI’s library is unique. We specialize in assistive technology devices and kits, braille and large print resources, FM systems, and content and instructional materials to support learners with autism and other complex disabilities. It is essential that our library is accessible to those who use screen readers and other technology that allows access.
We appreciated the partnership with the team at Equinox as they took time to learn our unique items and problem solve with us through our specific complexities. The solution focused attitude of the team has been wonderful.
The Equinox team were deftly helpful in educating our team regarding Koha’s tremendous abilities. It became clear that Equinox and their mastery of Koha was a hand-in-glove ILS solution that would serve our organization’s goals.
The success of this complex and large migration would have been impossible without the dedicated support of specialists from Equinox Open Library Initiative. The Equinox team was responsive to our needs in a way that cannot be over-celebrated.
