There is also an interest group, the Documentation Interest Group (DIG) which was formed at the 2009 Evergreen Conference in Athens. The Cataloging Working Group was formed at the 2012 Evergreen Conference in Indianapolis. The Evergreen Web Team was formed as a task force out of the Communications Committee.

Goal: The Web Team was originally part of the Communications Committee who's job it was to identify existing information, communication, collaboration and community resources and provide guidelines to community about how to organize these resources to make it easier for community members to find and use them. Since the establishment of an Oversight Board the higher level communication policy issues are being handled by that group. Archive of Communications Committee Work: Evergreen Communications Committee.
The Web Team is currently focused on a long-term vision of the Evergreen web ecosystem. This group used a formal process of needs analysis and content inventory to develop a web-based framework for the growing Evergreen community and is now in the process of building a Drupal-based prototype for consideration by the community. See http://drupal.evergreen-ils.org/.
