Columbia Law migrates to the TIND ILS

Released May 23, 2019

New York, NY and Oslo, Norway – May 23, 2019. TIND is proud to welcome Columbia Law Library to the growing cadre of academic libraries opting for the TIND ILS. Columbia is migrating from Sierra ILS.


Columbia Law staff evaluated the TIND ILS platform functionality extensively and spoke with current TIND ILS customer, UC Berkeley Law about their experience working with the relatively new company on their ILS migration project and how the system has been working for them in the subsequent months.

Inclusive to the migration is a host of development items and a second iteration of the new acquisitions and serials modules originally developed in collaboration with UC Berkeley Law in 2018.

“Having the opportunity to partner with another prestigious law school to further fine-tune these two heavily used modules of the system is a real benefit. Additional input and use-cases make the product better applicable not just to law libraries, which certainly is a market segment that has been under-served, but also for academic libraries more generally.”

Says TIND CEO and co-founder, Alexander Nietzold.
