SirsiDynix, a provider of technology solutions for libraries, has announced it is forming a new team to deliver solutions to the K-12 market segment. These solutions include SchoolRooms--an online exploration, discovery, and learning portal for students, teachers, and parents--and a library management system interface for library media specialists to circulate, catalog, and maintain their individual collections.
Chuck Leachman, who has more than 30 years of experience with K-12 libraries, will rejoin SirsiDynix to lead the team as director of SchoolRooms/K-12 Market Solutions. He will assist public libraries, consortia, state libraries, and state departments of education to understand the educational benefits of SchoolRooms and how it can facilitate a collaborative relationship between all interested parties in better serving students, teachers, and parents. Leachman joins SirsiDynix from Sagebrush Corp., where he was strategic accounts manager.
