For more than 30 years, libraries have used SirsiDynix technologies to bring the power of their collections to their communities. Our story began when Northwestern University developed a system to automate its library card catalogs in the 1960s. Since then, we have been a committed partner to libraries around the world, employing technology that allows librarians to do more that just keep track of their collection. Today, more than 23,000 library facilities in more than 70 countries use our products and services to bring the power of knowledge and information to 300 million users worldwide.
As stated in the American Library Association's 2010 State of America's Libraries Report, "The local library, a traditional source of free access to books, magazines, CDs and DVDs, has become a lifeline, offering technology training and workshops on topics that ranged from resume-writing to job-interview skills."
Libraries today are more than buildings full of books. As the needs of the people and communities they serve have substantially changed, libraries have rapidly responded. Because of their unchanging commitment to providing people access to information, libraries continue to be information leaders around the world. Every member of the SirsiDynix team is proud to be a part of that commitment, developing technologies that makes access to information possible in ways we never imagined.
SirsiDynix develops technology with the philosophy that the tools you use today should not hinder you from achieving your goals tomorrow. SirsiDynix is proud to create these industry-leading tools, for more libraries than any other vendor in the world, for the benefit of libraries and communities everywhere.
