 Many libraries have terminals which they wish to lock down to only access the library'​s catalogue. ​  ​Because the catalogue is accessed over the internet, you will need to configure your terminals with a whitelist. ​  If you are not familiar with whitelists, this can often be set up using firewall software. Many libraries have terminals which they wish to lock down to only access the library'​s catalogue. ​  ​Because the catalogue is accessed over the internet, you will need to configure your terminals with a whitelist. ​  If you are not familiar with whitelists, this can often be set up using firewall software.

 The Evergreen staff client is built using XULRunner, a technology which is used for many applications,​ primarily Firefox, as well as Songbird media player, Thunderbird Email client and many more.  Generally, the system requirements are on par with Mozilla Firefox -- you'll want to make sure your system has decent JavaScript performance and high speed bandwidth, if you have the resources and the know-how, consider using Quality of Service/QoS or some form of throttling to prioritize traffic to the Evergreen server so that your public workstations don't eat up all your bandwidth. The Evergreen staff client is built using XULRunner, a technology which is used for many applications,​ primarily Firefox, as well as Songbird media player, Thunderbird Email client and many more.  Generally, the system requirements are on par with Mozilla Firefox -- you'll want to make sure your system has decent JavaScript performance and high speed bandwidth, if you have the resources and the know-how, consider using Quality of Service/QoS or some form of throttling to prioritize traffic to the Evergreen server so that your public workstations don't eat up all your bandwidth.

 The Staff Client is built using Nullsoft Scriptable Installer System, and we can customize installer preferences such as icons, start menu items, shortcuts and many other general installation options. ​ We can also build a silent installers. ​ Finally, we can also build an MSI file for Windows Server users who wish to deploy the staff client using Group Policy. ​ Contact Sitka Support if you would like us to investigate any of these options for you. The Staff Client is built using Nullsoft Scriptable Installer System, and we can customize installer preferences such as icons, start menu items, shortcuts and many other general installation options. ​ We can also build a silent installers. ​ Finally, we can also build an MSI file for Windows Server users who wish to deploy the staff client using Group Policy. ​ Contact Sitka Support if you would like us to investigate any of these options for you.
