Almost forty SirsiDynix customers attended the first NASIG joint Unicorn, Corinthian and Horizon User Group lunchtime gathering.  Sharon Dyas-Correia began the session by welcoming everyone and introducing herself and the representatives from SirsiDynix.  

Dyas-Correia presented the agenda and reminded everyone of the enhancement process for SirsiDynix products.  She encouraged users to actively participate on SirsiDynix lists and enhancement forums since these are the vehicles by which users influence product evolution.

Matt Hensler, SirsiDynix Serials Technical Product Manager, began the presentations with an informative summary of new enhancements scheduled for Unicorn GL3.2 and Corinthian and Horizon 8.0 Serials.  Announced Unicorn enrichments included improvements to sorting options for received issues and prediction as late reports, a serials controls not linked to vendors’ report, enhancements to MARC holdings report selection criteria, as well as improvements to MARC holding’ report output, MARC holdings export and CONSER pattern loading support.  Corinthian and Horizon enhancements included 72 customer requested improvements related to streamlining serials check-in, publication pattern groups, prediction domains, routing lists, printing issue labels, batch production of issue labels, review and dispatch of claims and the addition of a graphical calendar for pattern work and testing.

Ed Riding, SirsiDynix ERM Technical Product Manager, spoke next and delivered an informative presentation on the SirsiDynix forthcoming ERM interface with Serials Solutions.  The planned system will use Serials Solutions’ KnowledgeBase and be integrated with both Horizon and Unicorn products.   

There was a question and answer period after each presentation and when the speakers were finished, Sharon Dyas-Correia asked if there were any final questions as the session time was almost up. When no more questions were raised, Sharon adjourned the session.
