Other InformationThere are thirty-eight-member public libraries within WLS, four of which have branches, for a total of forty-four library locations plus the WLS headquarters office. WLS has been using integrated library system (ILS) solutions from SirsiDynix since 2007. WLS originally installed the SirsiDynix Unicorn system in 2007 and migrated to the SirsiDynix Symphony system in October 2009. In August 2010 the ILS was moved from servers at WLS headquarters to the SirsiDynix hosted datacenter. WLS, in its mission to ensure seamless access to excellent library service throughout Westchester County, seeks to implement mobile solutions to mirror or enhance typical in-library services. A new ILS will support the Library System and its membership in their goals with efficient workflows, adherence to both library industry and technology standards and best practices, provide staff access to statistical data on both system use and inventory, provide self-service opportunities for patrons, provide access controls to protect patron privacy and be scalable and adaptable for future growth and needs.
