SEREC: Southeast Regional Evergreen Conference: About


As the Evergreen community has grown, the annual International Conference has focused more on large-scale community issues such as development, growth, and community management. The original vision to provide an opportunity for participation from all aspects of the user base thus became difficult to fulfill.

The focus of the Southeast Regional Evergreen Conference (SEREC, pronounced \'sē-'rek\) is to provide practical, hands-on Evergreen training to library staff from a “service point level.” This training will take the form of presentations and round table discussions with a focus on workflows, best practices, and functionality. The conference will also be a time to network and meet with your Evergreen colleagues from other areas.

SEREC is supported by the State Library of North Carolina (NC Cardinal) and the Library of Virginia (Evergreen Virginia).
