as noted on a library listserv I get
I wanted to make sure you received the below e-mail in advance of its general distribution. Later today, SirsiDynix will be announcing a new technology platform that will blend the best features of
Horizon/Corinthian, Unicorn, and other solutions. Horizon 8.0/Corinthian will not be moved into general release, and Horizon 8.1/Corinthian will not be released. More details are below in the letter.
Two items to point out to you as a library either in the implementation queue or preparing to implement:
All implementations of Horizon 8.x/Corinthian will stop. You will be contacted by SirsiDynix within the next few days to discuss the options referenced below.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call me. Since this will not be shared with all SirsiDynix customers until later today, please do not further distribute this email.
if I had more in this as a patron, I'd refer to "the OPAC crisis" - fortunately AADL is at least a little isolated from this particular incident.
