HUNTSVILLE, Ala.—MARCH 31, 2005—Sirsi Corporation announced today that the CybraryN patron authentication solution is now SIP2-certified for the Sirsi Unicorn Library Management System. With patron authentication software that works seamlessly with Unicorn, libraries can ensure fair usage of public access computers automatically – freeing staff from monitoring this usage manually.
“Bringing value to customers is one of the core philosophies that CybraryN and Sirsi share,” said CybraryN vice president of Product Management Derek Peterson. “Our partnership with Sirsi enables a synergistic approach to visionary and technological leadership that will create tremendous benefits to our customers. Our unified products empower librarians to meet the technology demands and challenges of public access to all their digital resources.”
The Sirsi SIP2 Certification Program, an original certification program for the standard interchange protocol, version 2 (SIP2), enables third-party vendors to ensure that their SIP2-compliant products integrate seamlessly with Sirsi systems. Once a third-party product is Sirsi SIP2-Certified, Sirsi users will know that they can take advantage of best-of-breed, SIP2-compliant products in their Sirsi environment. In addition to vendors that are taking part in Sirsi's SIP2 Certification Program, Sirsi also has a range of Sirsi Technology Partners who also provide SIP2-compliant products that integrate with Sirsi systems.
