April 18, 2024, LEHI, UT— SirsiDynix is pleased to announce they will soon deliver several industry-leading solutions to Australia’s City of Gold Coast Libraries.

Among the products selected by the Queensland-based library network are Symphony—the most widely installed integrated library system in history—SirsiDynix SaaS, and a number of BLUEcloud modules.

Located across the Gold Coast region, City of Gold Coast Libraries comprises 11 branch libraries, seven self-service kiosks, and a mobile library. In support of their diverse community of more than 600,000 residents, the Libraries offer an array of inclusive, comprehensive resources. This includes extensive physical and digital collections—which total nearly one million items—as well as a vibrant range of programming opportunities, such as author talks, family engagement sessions, and English conversation circles.

With a strong belief in libraries and the power they have to uplift and enrich their communities, SirsiDynix is honored to provide services and support for Gold Coast Libraries.

“We are very proud to welcome the City of Gold Coast Libraries to the SirsiDynix family,” says SirsiDynix Chief Executive Officer Bill Davison. “From encouraging civic engagement to championing equitable access to information, the Libraries are a truly vital part of their community. We enthusiastically support their mission to make a meaningful difference in the lives of their patrons, and we look forward to partnering with them for many years to come.”

Once live, SirsiDynix’s foundational Symphony ILS will supply Gold Coast Libraries with rich functionality, streamlined workflows, and unparalleled flexibility. Plus, the company’s fully hosted SaaS system—trusted by libraries around the world since 1995— will ensure 99.95% service availability.

Rounding out Gold Coast Libraries’ robust suite of SirsiDynix solutions are a selection of cloud-based BLUEcloud modules. In the coming months, the Libraries will implement BLUEcloud Analytics, an enterprise-class reporting tool; BLUEcloud Circulation, an intuitive patron services interface; BLUEcloud Mobile2, a next-generation mobile discovery application; and more.
