For Immediate Release
DCL Going "Green"
Changes are coming to Dorchester County Library.
This spring the Library committed to joining SCLends, a
consortium of 10 county public library systems in the
state. These 10 systems are combining their
resources into one catalog and Evergreen is the software
that will be managing the content. The Library is
in the process of preparing its catalog to migrate to
the Evergreen software. Our collection will be
available in the SCLends catalog beginning October 15th,
The move to SCLends and Evergreen brings changes with
it. The Library's online catalog will look
different and some of the terms used will change.
The biggest change will be in the resources available to
our patrons. Dorchester County Library has
approximately 120,000 volumes in its collection.
When our system changes over on October 15th, patrons
will have access to a collection of over 2 million
volumes by the end of the year. More information
will be provided to our patrons as we get closer to
changing to the new Evergreen software.
