LEHI, Utah (April 27, 2015)—Powell River Public Library has signed a seven-year agreement with SirsiDynix for the BLUEcloud LSP, powered by Symphony. Library staff are working directly with SirsiDynix consultants to configure the LSP so that Powell River Library can best serve its community.

According to Powell River Library’s strategic plan, posted on their website, the library was looking for technology that “creates a modern information experience” for patrons. To meet this goal, Powell River Public Library selected eResource Central as part of their LSP package. With eRC, Powell River Library patrons will be able to download eBooks from resources like OverDrive and Project Gutenberg without leaving the library catalog.

In addition to using time-saving BLUEcloud tools, Powell River Library will host their LSP through SirsiDynix’s SaaS Solution. With this subscription, Powell River Library will benefit from 99.95% uptime, advanced security, and automatic backups and upgrades.

Powell River Library Chief Librarian, Terry Noreault, said, “We are pleased to be working with SirsiDynix to move our library to the next level. Symphony will allow us to both increase staff efficiency and deliver exciting new services to our patrons.”

“We’re proud to work with Powell River Public Library,” said Bill Davison, SirsiDynix CEO. “Powell River Library has outlined a specific vision for their technology future, and we believe the BLUEcloud LSP will help them achieve their goals.” Powell River Public Library has a total of nearly 50,000 titles and is located in Powell River, British Columbia, Canada.
