Customers of SirsiDynix Users Group, Inc. (COSUGI) awarded Tyler Irvin, SELCO Technology Support Librarian, the Listserv Guru Award at their annual conference in April 2017 at Salt Lake City. COSUGI chose Tyler for the award in recognition for his outstanding service helping to test Family Group, a new feature in the Horizon Integrated Library System (ILS). Tyler’s contributions to the listserv mailing list of testers contributed significantly to the development of the feature.
According to SirsiDynix, Family Group: Allows library patrons to checkout items, manage holds, pay fees and fines, and receive notices on behalf of other patrons that are linked to their account. SirsiDynix decided in 2016 to prioritize development of Family Group based on overwhelming demand from their Horizon customers, including SELCO. Family Group is slated for release in an upgrade scheduled for 2Q 2017.
Congratulations and thanks to Tyler for his outstanding service and commitment to providing the best possible technology solutions to libraries both within and outside the SELCO region!
