For more than 30 years, libraries have used SirsiDynix technologies to bring the power of their collections to their communities. Our story began when Northwestern University developed a system to automate its library card catalogs in the 1960s. Since then, we have been a committed partner to libraries around the world, employing technology that helps librarians do more than just keep track of their collection. Today, more than 23,000 library facilities in more than 70 countries use our products and services to bring the power of knowledge and information to 300 million users worldwide.
As stated in the American Library Association's 2010 State of America's Libraries Report, "The local library, a traditional source of free access to books, magazines, CDs and DVDs, has become a lifeline, offering technology training and workshops on topics that ranged from resume-writing to job-interview skills."
Libraries today are more than buildings full of books. As the needs of the people and communities they serve have substantially changed, libraries have rapidly responded. Because of their unchanging commitment to providing people access to information, libraries continue to be information leaders around the world. Every member of the SirsiDynix team is proud to be a part of that commitment, developing technologies that make access to information possible in ways we never imagined before.
SirsiDynix develops technology with the philosophy that the tools you use today should not hinder you from achieving your goals tomorrow. SirsiDynix is proud to create these industry-leading tools for more libraries than any other vendor in the world, for the benefit of libraries and communities everywhere.
At SirsiDynix, we are committed to our library customers and the communities they serve. Together with libraries, we help communities thrive by connecting people with library resources that educate and inspire. Our commitment extends beyond software and technical support—it means genuine service, to our libraries and to the industry.
Every member of the SirsiDynix team makes that commitment a reality through:
- Developing and delivering robust technology for library staff and users
- Providing dedicated service beyond the software
- Cultivating a community of SirsiDynix librarians to ensure a bright future for libraries everywhere
Over the years, SirsiDynix has looked for opportunities for growth to better meet the needs of our customers. In 2005, SirsiDynix acquired Docutek, a leader in e-learning solutions for academic and school libraries. EOS International was acquired in 2013, adding a wealth of knowledge to the company through its leading position in cloud-based special library software. Together, our family helps libraries do great things, now and in the future.
