The system is launched with GOBI real-time acquisitions and supports payment export to UC Berkeley’s central ERP system. The TIND ILS will also be integrated with EBSCO Discovery Service.

"We felt it was time to move to a more modern and efficient ILS to meet the needs of our faculty, students, and staff.  We are very happy to be working with Tind and this partnership has given us an opportunity to contribute to the development of a more robust product for the entire library community.”

Says Marci Hoffman, Associate Director, Berkeley Law Library

“We’re honored to be working with such a prestigious and forward thinking academic library. Reimagining library acquisitions and migrating 35 years of acquisitions, serials and holdings data was not an easy task. We are forever grateful for the time and expertise that the library so generously has provided us as part of this development. It’s been an intense and close collaboration: our team has spent so much time at Berkeley Law, it’s starting to feel like a second home to many of us!“

Says Alexander Nietzold, CEO at TIND.
