Sirsi Implementation Teams: The Enterprise Portal Solution Team

Over 60 MPLIC staff members are participating in the Sirsi implementation as members of one or more Implementation Teams. This is the first in a series of posts introducing the different teams -- their roles in the overall project and their members.

Role of the Enterprise Portal Solution Team:

  • To coordinate the implementation of the Sirsi Enterprise Portal Solution (EPS) and its varied components (Web Catalog, Kid’s Catalog, Single Search, Open URL Resolver, and Rooms).
  • To identify the requirements for data conversion and transfer.
  • To identify the requirements for reports and management information.
  • To identify the requirements for and to coordinate the delivery of staff training.
  • To identify and make recommendations on potential workflow changes.
