Get Involved!


Communicate with us

We invite you to join us in the many different forums in which we discuss the Evergreen project!

In the interests of transparency everything on the mailing lists and IRC is public and logged.

Every posting goes into the mailing list and IRC archive, which means that people will see your postings even if you haven’t yet linked it somewhere.

Once it’s out there, it’s public.

  • Technically, administrators can delete things, but the content may be mirrored, has feeds and is in the Google cache & other search engines indexes, so deleting something doesn’t make it go away.
  • Our policy is to leave the archives alone except in exceptional cases.
    Please send a request promptly to feedback@evergreen-ils.org if you believe you are the exception.

Mailing lists

Most of the day-to-day conversations are held on mailing lists and open to anyone with an email account. In addition, archives that provide much of the history of the project are readily available.
