Delaware County Community College and the SirsiDynix Building Better Communities Awards

The Delaware County (PA) Daily Times published a nice article on Monday on one of SirsiDynix’s 2006 Building Better Communities Award winners. Cool.
The customer is Delaware County Community College. You can read the whole article here. This is a very neat project where the library removed the issues of time and space in accessing medical information in real healthcare situations. Very cool.
The paragraph where the awards are mentioned says:
“As a result of the program’s success, the college was nominated for a SirsiDynix Building Better Communities Award, which recognizes innovative uses of technology solutions for libraries. Approximately 130 applications were submitted and DCCC was the only academic library of the five North American winners to receive a $10,000 prize. The award was used to buy 14 additional PDAs and the corresponding software.”
DCCC – Way to go to get some PR for libraries! It’s great to see the funds going to supporting more innovative programs at libraries.
Watch for the 2007 SirsiDynix Building Better Communities Awards announcement in the New Year. Start thinking about what you’re doing that’s innovative and transformational. This is one of the richest awards in libraryland and we hope it puts a spotlight on library creativity. You too can be on stage at ALA in DC in June getting a big cardboard cheque!
