SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH (March 19, 2013) – SirsiDynix, the world's leading provider of library automation solutions, unveiled the upcoming BLUEcloud Suite library services platform during the COSUGI 2013 user conference. BLUEcloud Suite comprises a set of cloud-based administration, discovery, acquisition, and collection management applications that augment libraries' current Horizon and Symphony systems. The first BLUEcloud Suite applications will be released in summer 2013. Many of the applications will be included as part of the normal Horizon and Symphony maintenance; every application will be available for desktops, laptops, and mobile devices.

"The BLUEcloud Suite represents a significant step forward in library automation and a strong direction for SirsiDynix," said SirsiDynix CEO Bill Davison. "BLUEcloud gives libraries extraordinary value; it delivers the benefits of a next-generation ILS without the risks or costs of migrating to an untested system. The entire suite is available for both Horizon and Symphony, giving libraries the stability they need along with an improved UI and more efficient workflows. Best of all, many BLUEcloud Suite applications, such as Cataloging, Circulation, and BLUEcloud PAC, are included in the price of libraries' current ILS maintenance."

The BLUEcloud Suite contains the following major components:

  • BLUEcloud Staff includes cloud-based Administration, Cataloging, Circulation, Acquisitions, and Serials applications for the price of ILS maintenance. It also includes premium applications such as SirsiDynix MobileCirc and the powerful Analytics application.
  • BLUEcloud Discovery gives your community facet-based searching with BLUEcloud PAC and BookMyne, included in ILS maintenance. It also includes Social Library for Facebook integration and BookMyne+, Enterprise, and Portfolio for robust customization and additional features.
  • BLUEcloud Marketplace offers libraries end-to-end eResource management with eResource Central. It also includes the upcoming Global Titles Lists and Global Vendor Access to give libraries instant access to available titles from multiple vendors for the price of ILS maintenance.
