HIGH POINT, N.C., May 27, 2009 – High Point University recently hosted the annual North Carolina Sirsi Users Group meeting, featuring Stephen Abram, vice president for innovation and chief strategist for SirsiDynix Institute, as the keynote speaker.
The May 20 event allowed users from across North Carolina to network and discuss their insights and issues with the three versions of SirsiDynix – an integrated library system software that HPU and many other universities and public libraries utilize for their online library catalogs.
In addition to Abram, five Sirsi Dynix executives attended the event, and were able to answer questions from the 114 librarians who attended the daylong meeting.
“Attendees were able to learn from each other about how to perform functions in the software,” said Sheri Teleha, HPU cataloging and serials librarian, who serves as secretary of the NC Sirsi Users Group.
