SirsiDynix Enterprise Portal Solution and SchoolRooms Improved

SirsiDynix (www.sirsidynix.com) announced the release of Enterprise Portal Solution (EPS) and SchoolRooms Version 2.2.2, offering improved performance, stability, and security. Users will have the ability to link Z39.50 search results to the native OPAC in multilibrary settings. Z39.50 functionality has also been updated to handle Unimarc. Version 2.2.2 is now available to current and new users of SirsiDynix Enterprise Portal and the SchoolRooms online K–12 exploration, discovery, and learning portal.

SirsiDynix Enterprise Portal Solution provides a single interface to all the high-quality information, resources, and services offered by a library or consortium. The product offers enhanced searching capabilities, consolidating searching of library catalogs, electronic databases, the internet, and more into a single, simple search. SirsiDynix Enterprise Portal Solution also features SirsiDynix Rooms Builder, a content management platform that allows creation of content in virtual rooms, arranged according to a site’s defined taxonomy of popular subject areas, supporting addition of relevant and current information and links in each room.

SchoolRooms is a website designed to help students explore, discover, and learn, and it also features resources for parents and teachers. SchoolRooms integrates thousands of pages of multimedia content, web links, other resources, and powerful search capabilities—all organized around the K–12 curriculum. In subject-oriented "virtual rooms" of hand-selected content, SchoolRooms visitors find the relevant resources and knowledge that meet their needs, whether for writing a research paper, understanding new concepts, or delving deeper into an area of special interest. The SchoolRooms parent guide is a tool parents can use to help their children learn outside the classroom.
