LOUIS Libraries Implement New Discovery Solution for Scholarly Content

Baton Rouge, Louisiana: LOUIS has selected SirsiDynix’s discovery system, Enterprise, as a new discovery solution for the thirty-five college and university libraries in Louisiana. This system will be integrated with the existing discovery system, EBSCO Discovery Service, and will eventually replace the current public library catalog for these campuses. This discovery solution provides users with a more modern interface than the traditional library catalog, as well as a more Google-like search experience for the discovery of both physical and electronic scholarly content. Enterprise is already live at Fletcher Technical Community College, and will be live at all thirty-five campuses by mid-December. 

LOUIS is excited about the positive outcomes this system will have on students who come into the library seeking help. Cliffton Theriot, Library Director at Nicholls State University said, "The SirsiDynix Enterprise platform empowers libraries with the tools needed to offer enhanced search capabilities allowing students greater access to the library's resources."

Commenting on the benefits of Enterprise, Fletcher Technical Services Librarian Jodi Duet said, “Implementing Enterprise has created a more user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing interface for our students. Our students love the look and feel of our Enterprise site and finding materials they need has become easier.”  

“We are so excited to hear about LOUIS’s full implementation of Enterprise,” said SirsiDynix CEO Bill Davison. “They have been a valued customer for many years, and we are happy that our new product could better serve the needs of their libraries. Here at SirsiDynix, we believe in the power of libraries and we are dedicated to providing our customers with the newest, best-of-breed software that gives them the freedom to explore and better serve their communities.” 

LOUIS has been a SirsiDynix customer for seventeen years. The thirty-five campuses implementing Enterprise also purchase their library management system, Symphony, from SirsiDynix.
