West Des Moines Public Library (IA) Selects Sierra and Encore
Emeryville, CA—Innovative announced today that the West Des Moines Public Library has selected the Sierra Services Platform and Encore Synergy for a complete library technology solution. The Library will be migrating from a SirsiDynix Horizon™ ILS.
"The value-added features in Sierra will free staff to focus more on the Library's customers. We were very excited by the cost-saving potential of some of the patron-management functionality, allowing us to lessen the number of patron notice mailings," says Director Darryl Eschete.
The Library has also selected a suite of products, including AirPAC for Smartphones, Circa Wireless Inventory, and Program Registration to provide a complete solution to support its community of patrons.
Continues Eschete: "The integrated Program Registration and the AirPAC for Smartphones mobile catalog will assist in providing first-rate service to our community. The Encore Synergy discovery tool will offer single-search capabilities to access our library materials, e-book collections, and databases."
Horizon™ is a trademark of SirsiDynix.
