How Is Connections Structured?

Day One: All attendees will unite on Opening Day, which features speakers from across the library industry and topics ranging from generative AI and digital equity to coalition building and social media strategy.


Day Two: Filled with company updates, introductions, and dynamic product overviews, Day Two offers current and prospective SirsiDynix customers an inside look at the functionality and development of BLUEcloud products.


Day Three: On the final day of the conference, attendees are encouraged to follow one of three custom tracks: Partner, Director, or Academic.


What’s Different Than Last Year?


“Connections Summit” has been changed to “Connections” because we are focusing on more meaningful conversations and building relationships.  


Day Two offers more choices than previous years. Instead of one track all day long, you can customize your learning path by choosing the sessions most applicable to you, your library, and your software. 

Product sessions have been extended with more focus on training and answering questions. 


We’ve included an entire day dedicated to discovery. 


Discord: Channels are set up to join the conversation, hang out with fellow librarians, and make connections. 


What Will I Learn?

On Opening Day, you’ll delve into topics such as generative AI, open access content, social media strategies, coalition building, and leading the charge on digital equity.

On the second day of the conference, those looking to get better acquainted with SirsiDynix will have the opportunity to explore the company’s mission and values—and our robust suite of BLUEcloud products.

All attendees will enjoy an inside look at BLUEcloud product roadmaps and development time lines as well as immersive overviews of product features, functionality, and benefits.

Connections will conclude with the option to select one of three tracks for the day: Partner, Director, Academic.

  • Those who select Partner will focus on current and forthcoming collaborations between SirsiDynix and partner organizations.
  • Those who select Director will receive key insights into SirsiDynix implementations, support, and services.
  • Those who select Academic will investigate transformative approaches to eResource and course list management.
