July 28, 2017, LEHI, UT—SirsiDynix is pleased to announce the addition of industry-leader Joel Hahn to the Professional Services Department. Joel is a librarian and long-time SirsiDynix user. Joining an already well-seasoned department, the Professional Services Team will be enhanced with Joel’s extensive experience. He joins the team as a Consultant, offering his unique skills to help libraries accomplish specialized customizations with their SirsiDynix solutions.
“We are delighted to have Joel join the SirsiDynix team,” says SirsiDynix VP of Professional Services Tim Hyde. “Joel brings years of specialized experience working with our solutions as a customer. He joins an already outstanding team. The SirsiDynix Consulting team is a unique leader in our industry for their superb skill and customer care. The addition of Joel’s expertise gives libraries a further resource to turn to for their customization needs and enriches our team with a highly experienced customer perspective.”
Joel has worked in libraries for 24 years, working with SirsiDynix systems for the last 16 years. He earned his MLIS through Dominican University while working at the Niles-Maine District Library as a cataloger. Over time, Joel moved from cataloging to database management. As Joel grew interested in software, he became a self-taught programmer, eventually becoming one of the top contributors on SirsiDynix Listservs with a reputation as a go-to problem solver.
“Given my unique background, working for SirsiDynix is very interesting for me,” said Hahn. “My new position will enable me to keep doing the custom work I’ve been doing, but on a grander scale. I’ll be able to help more than just the local group I was serving; with SirsiDynix Consulting I’ll now be serving a global customer base.”
Joel is known among the SirsiDynix community for his expertise in APIs and web services. The SirsiDynix Consulting Team is a perfect fit for Joel, as he will be helping BLUEcloud libraries take full advantage of SirsiDynix’s robust APIs and web services.
