SirsiDynix Enterprise is a search and discovery tool that helps patrons find what they need through a single search box. Accurate search results can be found even when typos, misspellings, diacritics, prefixes, and suffixes are involved. In addition, community features such as ratings and reviews can be added through ChiliFresh.

Other features include:

  • Trigram analysis, or “fuzzy logic” which evaluates each trigram in a word to allow for typos, diacritics and more: a first in the library search and discovery market

  • “Did you mean” suggestions which are based on terms in the catalog (rather than a generic third-party dictionary)

  • Dynamic search suggestions

  • Delivery of saved searches through an RSS web feed

  • Email and print options for search results

  • Built-in “Library Favorites”

  • The capability for libraries to define their own “Favorites”, profiles, languages and filters

  • Available for any size of library or consortia

An example of SirsiDynix Enterprise can be found at Wells County Public Library’s Enhanced Search site (http://welc.ent.sirsi.net/vse/app). Christine Will, Systems Administrator at Wells County said, “Our site has been using Enterprise for the past couple months. We advertise it to our customers as our new enhanced searching. We are excited about the possibilities and the direction Enterprise will take our online catalog.”

Gary Rautenstrauch, SirsiDynix chief executive officer, said “We are pleased with the features and ease of use that Enterprise offers both library staff and users, and we congratulate those who have taken the bold step to make searching more powerful and relevant. We look forward to further development and innovations in Enterprise and are confident it will continue to make searching both easy and powerful in the future.”
