March 28, 2016, LEHI, UT—SirsiDynix is excited to welcome the venerable Universidad de San Marcos to the family of SirsiDynix customers. Universidad de San Marcos recently selected a local install of SirsiDynix Symphony, as well as several BLUEcloud products, after a competitive bid among the industry's top vendors. The bid successfully concluded with a multi-year contract awarded to SirsiDynix. San Marcos is expected to go live in July.
Known as "Dean of the Americas," the Universidad de San Marcos is the oldest university in the western hemisphere and the largest public academic library in Peru. When making their decision, the historic yet progressive Universidad de San Marcos thoroughly assessed all options and chose Symphony as the best option—not only for its technological advantage but also for SirsiDynix's reliability and proven track record.
In addition to Symphony, the Universidad de San Marcos selected BLUEcloud Analytics, Enterprise, Portfolio, BLUEcloud Cataloging, BLUEcloud Circulation, MobileCirc, and web services. Tailored to the needs of academic institutions, tools like Portfolio will be of great benefit to San Marcos by providing complex resource management.
