SirsiDynix Mentor available for library staff training and administration

May 6th, 2010

PROVO, UT, May 6, 2010 – SirsiDynix®, the world leader in library technology, today announced that customer training will now be available through SirsiDynix® Mentor, an online learning management tool for the benefit of customer libraries and their staff. Through Mentor, library managers and staff can access, track, and report on training services provided by the company.

SirsiDynix is offering customers 50 percent off training courses purchased with a credit card through Mentor between now and June 30, 2010.

“Our Education Services team offers hundreds of courses already, live, on-­‐demand and onsite, however, our library customers have asked for better ways to manage their training investment,” said Matt Hawkins, chief operating officer for SirsiDynix. “We invested in an easy-­‐to-­‐use learning management system to help customers maximize their technology investment. Practical training in this contemporary format helps library staff be successful.”

Through SirsiDynix Mentor, library managers can assign learning activities based on a learner’s job responsibilities and track individual progress or course progress. Library staff can take their assigned training, print certificates of completion, and view their learning transcript, which can document training outside of the SirsiDynix course catalog.

SirsiDynix offers training on a wide variety of products, topics and technical levels. Currently, there are close to 100 eLearning courses available on core technology fundamentals and product updates and changes. Through Mentor, users can also locate live, interactive instructor-­‐led courses that are scheduled throughout the year. SirsiDynix also offers custom onsite and hands-­‐on group or private distance training courses, which can be tracked through Mentor.
