Technical Services Manager
Sonoma County Library

"I think the SirsiDynix Institute is one of the most exciting things that SirsiDynix is doing to support customers, and not just SD customers, but all people in the library profession. SirsiDynix Institute really is one of the best professional development opportunities available to libraries because it's Web based and free. All of the sessions, whether they deal with library technology or other aspects of library planning, are professionally done by well-known people from across the country, and anybody can participate."

"It is our first experience, we really appreciate being together in a room and listening to the presentation. This is a premier, there will be others!"

"I really like this format. Relaxed right from my desktop or broadcast in a group setting. Access to the PDF is wonderful."

Jill Rourke
Wyoming State Library

"These are great seminars! They are so timely and keep me thinking and refreshing my approaches to planning and leading."

Pam Bohmfalk
Hastings Public Library

"In 25 years of working with libraries across the country, this is the first program I've found that offers so many librarians and library staff a way to access my seminars for free. I am excited to work with the SirsiDynix Institute to conveniently make my training available to librarians with the accessibility that distance learning provides. As a presenter, this is the first time I have found distance learning to be enjoyable."

Pat Wagner
Pattern Research

"I found the SirsiDynix Institute to be a great venue for delivering a presentation on a timely topic. The folks at SirsiDynix in no way influenced me to shape my talk around their products and services, giving me the freedom to do an honest and objective treatment of the issues. The Web-based presentation technology worked great; I look forward to future opportunities to be a presenter in the SirsiDynix Institute."

"The seminars are convenient and very helpful. The use of technology is a nice example of how it can be done," said Alice Weber, Acquisitions Librarian at the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library at the University of Utah. "Also, making the archive available to those who cannot attend the live seminar, and allowing those of us who did to refresh, is very valuable."

"I appreciate opportunities like this to gather information that helps me keep on top of things. We have a very small staff and too much work, so getting away for training is difficult."
