What you need to know about our new Evergreen Catalog


The Berkshire Athenaeum, as part of the 150 library CWMARS network, moved to the Evergreen library system over Memorial Day weekend. As an open source system, Evergreen provides opportunities for the network to design the interface and functionality we need in a cost effective way, without being beholden to a commercial vendor.

The migration entailed  over 9 million items into the new system; troubleshooting and resolution of issues continue on an ongoing basis. We appreciate the patience of our patrons in the coming weeks. Here are a few things we want you to know:

  1.  Brand New Catalog: You can now access your account at http://tinyurl.com/7few5y4 .
  2. Username: Your library barcode (from your library card) is your username. Once you log in, you have the opportunity to change it to suit your preference.
  3. PIN number or Password: PINS/Passwords from the old catalog were encrypted and could not be migrated. Your PIN has been reset to your last name, in upper-case letters e.g. SMITH. Once you log in you have the opportunity to change it to suit your preference.
  4. Holds: Some outstanding holds did not migrate from the old catalog. We recommend you log in to your account, review your holds and, if you find some are missing, resubmit them or contact the Athenaeum Reference Department to resubmit them on your behalf.

Questions? Problems? Contact the Reference Desk at pittsref@cwmars.org or (413) 499-9480 x202 during regular library hours.
