Duluth, GA. May 22, 2012. Equinox Software President Brad LaJeunesse has been selected by The University of South Carolina School of Library and Information Science as the 2012 recipient of the F. William Summers Outstanding Alumni Award.
Considered the premiere award bestowed by the school, this honor was founded in 1986 and is given on a selective basis as the faculty feels that a graduate has distinguished themselves in the field.
LaJeunesse says, "I'm humbled to be selected for the F. William Summers Alumni Award. My deep thanks goes to the faculty and staff of the library school."
LaJeunesse received his MLIS from the University of South Carolina in 2001. He was the original visionary and advocate behind the Evergreen open source library automation software currently running in almost 1,200 libraries worldwide. In 2007, he and the other Evergreen developers founded Equinox Software which today provides services for both Evergreen and Koha libraries across the United States and Canada.
