Sirsi Implementation Teams: The Collection Exchange Team

On Nov. 14, a number of staff members involved in the Sirsi ILS implementation, including several members of the Collection Exchange Team, attended a live WebEx presentation by SirsiDynix consultant Margaret Pelfrey. Margaret introduced the basic features of the Unicorn Collection Exchange module, which is intended to help manage the rotation of collections among a group of libraries.

MPLIC is evaluating Collection Exchange as a means of managing our library system's Large Print Rotating Collection once we make the transition to Unicorn.

Role of the Collection Exchange Team:

  • To coordinate the implementation of the Collection Exchange function
  • 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
