PROVO, UTAH (November 2, 2010) – SirsiDynix, the world’s leading provider of library automation solutions, is providing libraries with improved tools for accessing, customizing and sharing their data with today’s release of SirsiDynix® Web Services 3.0 for developers. With Web Services 3.0, libraries can access the full suite of Web Services components, plus new functionality including:
- LDAP configuration support
- Expanded My Lists access and capabilities
- Ability to retrieve data on user fines and fees
- Tools for self registration allowing new users to sign up for library accounts
- Functionality for changing user pin numbers
Web Services, a subset of the SirsiDynix Symphony® API, gives library system administrators simplified access and tools for quickly responding to the needs of library staff and users.
“Web Services 3.0 is the most robust developer’s kit we’ve created yet,” said SirsiDynix Chief Technology Officer Talin Bingham. “For libraries looking to customize their system, offer unique interfaces specific to user groups or even make certain information open for public use and manipulation, the Web Services license gives them the tools.”
Web Services provides an alternative mechanism for accessing the catalog and system data, and opens the door for even greater compatibility with third-party systems and programs. SirsiDynix Web Services 3.0 also provides patrons of customer libraries full access to the benefits of the SirsiDynix BookMyne™ iPhone application.
