Open Outputs: “Evergreen ILS (https://evergreen-ils.org/) is an open source and free library management software which offers public catalogue interface along with features that help users with the back-end workflow operations.” It allows finding library materials, and helps libraries manage, catalogue, and circulate those materials as well as providing multiple payment options with self-registration and self-checkouts options. It is used by nearly two thousand libraries around the world and is suited for all sizes of libraries from small to large complex library set ups.
