August 2, 2017, Lehi, UTó The Merrimack Valley Library Consortium is one of the newest members of the SirsiDynix family. Formerly a Horizon library, MVLC spent the last few years as an Open Source customer. However, in early 2017 they chose to rejoin the SirsiDynix family and become a Symphony library on the Enterprise discovery system. Merrimack Valley Library Consortium went live with Enterprise earlier this year.
Enterprise is a modern discovery tool, providing libraries with a fresh interface and configurable search experience. Enterprise provides the discovery of both physical and electronic content in a single solution, for a better end-user experience.
Along with using Enterprise as their new online catalog, MVLC has selected Syndetics Unbound for their catalog enrichment service.
Syndetics Unbound, the next generation of the Syndetics catalog enrichment service, works with Enterprise to give the user a dynamic way to explore the wealth of titles available in MVLC. Unbound integrates well with SirsiDynix technology because of robust API and web services, which allow for smooth integration of third party tools.
Eric Graham, Executive Director of the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium, said, "The beauty of bringing this new product live is the amount of attention we've gotten from our partners at SirsiDynix and ProQuest. They have provided MVLC with outstanding service and have made our transition easy. Whenever we encountered roadblocks or we had questions, they were there for us."
MVLC went live with Enterprise and the Syndetics Unbound enhancement on May 18th.
"We want our customers to know that when they work with us, they are family," said SirsiDynix CEO Bill Davison. "Here at SirsiDynix, each customer is important to us, and we work to make their transition to us easy and stress-free. We are also dedicated to producing Best-of-Breed software that works well with third party software and enhancement systems so that our customers can truly create the best user experience for their library."
