SirsiDynix for Consortia

One size fits all? Not in library consortia! 

SirsiDynix helps library consortia worldwide provide superior library services while preserving the level of autonomy desired in the individual consortial setting. In fact, SirsiDynix supports more library consortia than any other information management vendor. Working well together separately is the principle upon which SirsiDynix shared systems are built and the principle governing the flexibility that SirsiDynix systems and products afford. SirsiDynix consortia enjoy:

  • Localized branding for the library catalog
  • Searching that highlights local collections or resources across the consortium
  • Flexibility to define how and if resources will be shared
  • Holds management that supports intra-library loan while preserving prioritization for local usage and efficient delivery
  • Centralized or decentralized management of library holdings, funds, vendors, serials and other data
  • Unlimited, hierarchical policies that can differ by library
  • Reporting by library, library group and cross-consortium

SirsiDynix has long focused on the special needs of consortia and provides the industry's most Comprehensive Integrated Technology Environment for consortia. From library management systems that support all technical and public services, to today's leading business intelligence technologies for libraries, to the latest user interface solutions and everything in between -- they're all part of SirsiDynix's end-to-end suite of technologies supporting the unique and complex needs of today's consortia.
