Cate Geunther, Digital Scholarship and Repository Librarian said of the decision:
“Colorado College is excited to have selected TIND’s IR and DA platforms to host our digitalCC repository. TIND ranked highest in our search for a modern platform with robust search options and a company that would continue to develop features that will benefit our community. We look forward to working with them to develop a number of exciting new features for our users that weren’t possible or were cost prohibitive with other platforms, such as open access journal publishing and scholar profiles.”
Implementation and development is well underway and the system is expected to go live over the coming months. “We’re quite pleased to have found another development partner as engaged as Colorado College. Working closely with our partner libraries to build a best-in-breed solution together is the backbone of what we do here at TIND.” said Kathy McCarthy, Vice President of Partnership Development.
TIND is an official CERN spin-off providing library management systems, digital preservation- and research data management solutions based on CERN open source software (Invenio). More info at www.tind.io
