This guide focuses on the administration of the Evergreen ILS, which is a product originally developed by the Georgia Public Library Service for the PINES consortium.

The PINES Local System Administrator

Each PINES library system is required to have a Local System Administrator who is responsible for being a single point of contact for consortium-level technical information. This staff person is also considered the “technical lead” responsible for local PINES workstation configuration, locally-set system settings, creating and running statistical reports, and submitting tickets to the GPLS Helpdesk.
