We had our first planning phone call with Shae Tetterton, Project Manager, and Galen Charlton, VP for Data Services, of Equinox. Equinox will be migrating over the bibs, items, and patrons for three of our four developmental partner libraries. (The fourth library, the Windham Free Library, is not currently automated.)
The four developmental partner libraries are:
- The Beacon Falls Library
- The Douglas Library, Hebron
- The Slater Library, Griswold
- The Windham Free Library
This first planning phone call was very encouraging. Shae assured us that soon after the contract with Equinox is signed, they would set up a Project Kick-Off phone call, and there would be regularly scheduled calls following this initial call.
Our tentative plan is to have the first developmental partner library live by the end of January 2010.
Stay tuned for more . . .
