Stephen Abram Leaving SirsiDynix

I was just writing about Stephen Abram the other day. He is the Vice-President of Innovation at SirsiDynix, one of the biggies in library automation.

My place of work uses SirsiDynix technology to run our library management system.

He is leaving SirsiDynix at the end of the year to take a position at Gale Cengage Learning as Vice-President for Strategic Partnerships and Markets.

Abram is a great speaker and ideas guy. I have seen him talk at quite a few conferences and library association meetings and he is always, let's say, infectiously enthusiastic about his topic.

He may not remember this but I called him up out of the blue at the beginning of the decade when he was with another company. He took 45 minutes out of his busy day to chat with me and offer career advice.

Let us hope he remains as excited as ever about libraries, the possibilities of technology and the fostering of excellence in librarianship.
