Altogether, the Evergreen Indiana catalog holds over 1.8 million bibliographic records and provides access to over 3.2 million items.
The year 2010 will be one of continued growth as an additional 10 member libraries and the Indiana State Library will go live in the first sixth months with several more to follow soon thereafter. The Evergreen Indiana Consortium currently has 70 member libraries that serve over 693,000 Indiana residents. Check out the Evergreen Indiana Map for locations and websites of member libraries.
