Amigos Library Services joins CloudSource OA pilot program

July 21, 2021, LEHI, UTó SirsiDynix has partnered with Amigos Library Services to offer member libraries pilot access to CloudSource OA, a new content platform from SirsiDynix that delivers vetted, quality open access (OA) articles, eTextbooks, and eBooks in an intuitive way to library patrons. The CloudSource OA package also includes BLUEcloud Course Lists, which facilitates library collaboration with faculty on affordable learning initiatives that emphasize library licensed and open materials. With seamless learning management system (LMS) integration, it meets users where they are and ensures easy access to library collections at the point of need.

"SirsiDynix is pleased to be working with Amigos to promote the use of OA materials," said Rick Branham, VP of Academic and Content Solutions. "Libraries, funders, and higher education institutions have put a lot of work into encouraging authors to choose OA licenses, and there is now a wealth of OA content available across many disciplines. It's our goal to give libraries the tools they need to make this content easily accessible to their users."

"Amigos is very happy to be working closely with SirsiDynix, and proud to be able to offer discounted open access solutions to our members," said Laurence Zuercher, Member Discount Services and Trans-Amigos Express Supervisor. "We're excited for what's in store!"

Amigos members will have free use of CloudSource OA through 2021 and receive ongoing discounts once the product is generally available.
