HUNTSVILLE, Ala., April 24, 2006 – SirsiDynix, the global leader in strategic technology solutions for libraries, announced today that the SirsiDynix Institute now offers podcasting as a means of sharing its free Web seminars with library and information professionals. The SirsiDynix Institute is an ongoing forum for professional development in the library community, providing free access to industry-leading speakers and events. Library professionals from more than 10,000 libraries have attended SirsiDynix Institute seminars since they began in 2003.
SirsiDynix Institute podcasts are available for free download here and for free subscription at the iTunes Music Store . Each podcast runs approximately one hour and covers current topics of interest to librarians. Instructions can be found here.
“The SirsiDynix Institute is a one-of-a-kind professional development resource in the library sector,” said Stephen Abram, SirsiDynix vice president of innovation. “SirsiDynix’s vision is to help create a future in which libraries play a more strategic role within their communities – making sense of the vast world of information and bringing knowledge in all its forms to real people to meet real needs – and this vision motivates us to offer resources like the SirsiDynix Institute to advance the work of librarianship around the world.
“Now it’s even more convenient for listeners to access SirsiDynix Institute seminars – whenever and wherever they want through podcasts,” Abram added.
