Evergreen Documentation Needs
High level workflow for documenting new EG features
| 1. Choose a Task || 2. Read Release Notes || 3. Update the Docs
- Look at the task list below and add your name next to a task
- Need a wiki account? Just ask.
- Review the release notes entry for the feature (and/or the Launchpad bug)
- It may need a new section in one or more of the official manuals
- It may fit within an existing section
- It may only need updated screenshots
- You may be able to simply copy the release note into the appropriate section
- Make corrections in any
format (perhaps by editing
on GitHub) and share with the email list
- Learn more about ways to contribute your changes
EASY Tasks for New Contributors

Quick Start Guides
We would like to provide an "Evergreen Quick Start" guide for the most common functions of Evergreen. The intended audience is library volunteers, student workers, and staff who are new to libraries. Learn more about the initial idea.
Here's a list of the guides we think we need. Feel free to add more!
