Subject: [plagpk] Aga Khan University Libraries Go Live with Symphony
To: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
Date: Wednesday, June 1, 2011, 5:47 PM
I am pleased to share that the Aga Khan University has successfully implemented “Symphony” Integrated Library Management System in nine libraries in five countries (3 continents). Symphony was chosen after a comprehensive review of major international library systems. Symphony is product of SIRSI-DYNIX, one of the world leaders in library automation. Symphony and SIRSI-DYNIX products are implemented in hundreds of academic libraries all over the world.
The AKU libraries’ catalog search page, called SAFARI, can be accessed at http://safari.aku.edu. The new system will integrate all AKU libraries’ holdings into a single, state of the art database that conforms to international standards common to major academic libraries.
The system remains a work in progress and will be constantly improved. We still have work to do bringing our bibliographic records to international standards level. The project implementation was started in first week of January and went live on 31st May, 2011.
A lot of hard work went on to get the project implemented within given timelines. This work was accomplished mostly by a well integrated team of librarians at FHS Karachi, IED Karachi, PDCN Gilgit, PDCC Chitral, FHS Nairobi, FHS Dar es Salaam, IED Dar es Salaam, FHS Kampala coordinated by Mr. Ashraf Sharif, Systems Librarian.
