PROVO, UT, September 22, 2008 – SirsiDynix, the global leader in strategic technology solutions for libraries today officially announced the release of an enhanced resource sharing product, URSA® 4.1. URSA, the Universal Resource Sharing Application, has been a leader in library consortial borrowing for over 10 years. The software solution works with any NCIP integrated library solution and can also be configured to work with solutions that do not choose to use the NCIP standard.
URSA automates request placement, quadruples the speed in which patrons receive their requests, and costs less than a third of traditional inter-library loans. It utilizes powerful Z39.50 search engine, de-duplicates search results, authenticates at the home library, and uses optional web-based fill-in request forms.
