PROVO, UTAH (JULY 26, 2011) – SirsiDynix, the world's leading provider of library technology solutions, celebrates the growing community of libraries using the SirsiDynix suite of library search and discovery tools. In Q2 of this year, 49 libraries selected the SirsiDynix Enterprise discovery platform for their user interface, 22 of which expanded their solution to include SirsiDynix Portfolio digital asset management capabilities.
"SirsiDynix has delivered outstanding innovations in our suite of library technology tools this year alone, and libraries are responding," said SirsiDynix Chief Executive Officer Matt Hawkins. "We worked closely with several libraries to understand the most important aspects of the user experience, then built our discovery interface around that feedback. The result is an intuitive, powerful discovery experience with significantly streamlined implementation to get our libraries live and using the technology faster. We are delighted to see these tools in the hands of so many valued customers and library users already."
Released just last month, SirsiDynix Enterprise 4.1 provides library users with a seamless and instinctive user interface; drag-and-drop account management; high-accuracy search results with significant indexing enhancements; simplified interaction with the hit list; and enhanced faceting capabilities for refining searches by author, subject, publication date or availability, to name a few.
SirsiDynix Portfolio digital asset management expands on the Enterprise platform, adding the ability to manage, secure and deliver digital assets of all sorts via a streamlined interface. Portfolio comes equipped with optical character recognition (OCR) technology, Open Archive Initiative (OAI-PMH) compatibility for Web harvesting, and classified security capabilities for restricting visibility of confidential materials by user or group.
