BC Libraries Cooperative 

Our organization was founded in 2009 to develop the Evergreen® open-source ILS to support a new generation of library service in British Columbia. Since then, we have grown in both membership and range of services to take advantage of opportunities we see for our members, and in response to what our members tell us they need in their communities. We are governed by a board elected by our members, and we welcome member participation through a number of channels

We help our members do a lot with a little. When it comes to IT infrastructure, our aim is to increase technological capacity in all of our members’ communities. We aim high, and as a hybrid between a traditional library consortium and a technology start-up we are a unique organization in Canada.
