About SirsiDynix

For more than 30 years, libraries have used SirsiDynix technologies to bring the power of their collections to their communities. Our story began when Northwestern University developed a system to automate its library card catalogues in the 1960s. Since then, we have been a committed partner to libraries around the world, employing technology that allows librarians to do more than just keep track of their collection. Today, more than 23,000 library facilities in more than 70 countries use our products and services to bring the power of knowledge and information to 300 million users worldwide.
