Body
DEPARTMENT RECOMMENDATION
Library Department recommending the Board approve and authorize the Chair to sign Amendment II to Agreement 178-S1411/350 with SirsiDynix for $800 to add an internal license that will allow County staff to develop an application that will interface with the SirsiDynix software that manages library operations. Agreement 178-S1411/350 is a perpetual agreement with an approximate annual cost of $60,000.

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
The Library has contracted with SirsiDynix since 2002 to provide software that manages library services, including circulation and cataloging of library materials, a database of patrons, items and transactions, and a public interface that allows patrons to manage their own accounts. The addition of the internal license will allow County staff to develop an application that will interface with a separate Library database of participants registered in library early literacy programs. The application will eliminate duplication of efforts, streamline work process, and improve customer service.
