Gets the job done with some training
Comentarios: day to day cataloging, weeding reports, and collection maintenance
Puntos a favor: Once you are trained after a few weeks it becomes easier to navigate but even after 7 years we are still learning about features we never used. It is customize able with common tasks on top, love being able to clone users to do multiple library cards at once, we like that cataloging is separate so no one accidentally deletes or edits a record. Easy to back date things when we are closed or look through holds on items.
Contras: Using workflows, it is not forgiving when it comes to spelling errors of any kind. Workflows requires lots of up front training and we find many of our staff use our outward public catalog to find materials instead. Many times doing advanced searching requires knowing specific catalog codes that might not be easily known for anyone at a service desk. I also think the reports feature is clunky and antiquated and we are only allowed to print reports at specific times so it doesn't overload the system. Language of side bar like ephemeral isn't easily known to librarians but seems self explanatory. Annoying to have to close all opened tabs before it will shut down.

Ah, my old friend SirsiDynix
Comentarios: I've been a cataloging librarian for about 10 years and this is the only program I've ever cataloged in. It functions exactly as I've ever needed it to; the acquisitions is straight forward, the cataloging functions work well and accomodate all number of media, and I have never been in a situation where I couldn't find a way to do it in Sirsi. Importing records is particularly easy, it's a great tool for copy catalogers. However, nothing is without flaws. This is a highly specialized ILS, it requires training and time to understand. None of it is particularly intuitive and some functions I've never used -- but been told not to because they're too complicated and easy to screw up. I have no hard feelings regarding these things, but I will admit, that anytime I've trained anyone to use it, it's a time-consuming and complicated process. Luckily, for training and otherwise, some 'tabs' or features can be locked or password protected to limit access to the only person that needs to use those functions. Overall, I wouldn't recommend SirsiDynix to anyone without knowing whether or not it could meet their library's needs and be worth sinking the time into training it requires.
Puntos a favor: It really gets the job done, and has features for everything I've ever needed it for.
Contras: It's difficult to learn to use and difficult to teach others how to use
