Charlotte, NC and Oslo, Norway – February 18, 2022. The Charlotte Mecklenburg Library has selected TIND DA, migrating more than 15,000 historical images from a locally developed DAM solution. TIND DA will also be home to forthcoming digitization projects, including the digitization of the local newspaper. Excellent user experience and powerful metadata editing tools are mentioned among the key reasons for selecting TIND DA.
TIND DA is managed by the Robinson-Spangler Carolina Room, a department in the Main Library, housing historical and current information on Charlotte, Mecklenburg County and North Carolina.
John O'Connor, the Robinson-Spangler Carolina Room Leader, explains why the library has decided to implement the TIND Digital Archive:
"The archives and special collections at Charlotte Mecklenburg Library chose TIND because the interface was easy to use for both the public and our staff. We were impressed by how flexible TIND is when adding new items and editing metadata for those items. We loved that TIND uses MARC for its descriptive metadata, allowing us to quickly and easily train cataloging staff to help with digitization and digital archiving. We've been very happy with how organized and straightforward the onboarding process has been and look forward to continuing to work with them."
TIND is an official CERN spin-off providing library management systems, digital preservation- and research data management solutions based on CERN open source software. More info at www.tind.io
