SIRSI Consortium

The SIRSI Consortium is made up of the group of Ontario college libraries who share the SirsiDynix Integrated Library System (ILS). The SirsiDynix ILS is hosted by OCLS who, on a cost recovery basis, manages the contract with SirsiDynix, and maintains a service level agreement with the participating colleges. OCLS provides a Help Desk and ticket tracking service as well as manages the relationship with the vendor for the colleges.

In their hosting and management capacity OCLS performs system level maintenance on the ILS, works with the colleges and SirsiDynix to resolve new or outstanding problems, and assists the colleges by managing their circulation, cataloguing and other ILS-related policies as needed and as requested. The members of the SIRSI Consortium pay an annual fee to OCLS to cover the service costs.
