Released December 11, 2020

St. Louis, MO and Oslo, Norway – December 11, 2020. The Materials Technology Institute (MTI) has selected the TIND Institutional Repository (TIND IR) and TIND Digital Archive (TIND DA). MTI is migrating from an existing repository provided by Global Village Publishing (GVPi), a Sage Publishing product. MTI will utilize the TIND platform to provide web-based repository access to over four decades of not-for-profit research and resources to its member companies and engineers. 

Lindsey Skinner, Director of Communications and Business Development commented:

“TIND checked the boxes for MTI’s requirements in our search for a new online library system. Our selection committee was impressed by the design, easy navigation, and robust search and filtering tools—the committee is confident the system will be an improved member benefit that can continue to grow with us. In addition, the TIND team was very responsive when we had questions and provided a thorough review of all the system features, which made us even more comfortable. We are eager to begin the implementation process and look forward to working with the TIND team.
