The United Nations Dag Hammarskjöld Library selects TIND for its Digital Library System

Released December 01, 2015

New York, NY and Geneva, Switzerland – December 1, 2015. TIND, an official CERN spin-off, was selected through formal tender by the United Nations Dag Hammarskjöld Library to provide their cloud-based Digital Library System based on CERN open source software.

TIND will provide a flexible, scalable and integration solution replacing multiple ILS-, repository- and search platforms, including Horizon (SirsiDynix) and DSpace. The UN manages a vast collection of digitized and born-digital material that will be made accessible and preserved safely in the cloud-platform. The eventual scale of the collection is estimated at over 10 million files.

"We are excited about this because we feel that Invenio is a perfect fit to address concerns about UN digital content" says Bojan Grozdanic, Digital Library Coordinator at the Dag Hammarskjold Library in New York. The new digital library system will introduce modern and customizable workflows to streamline the UNs ongoing digitization process, and offer a unified solution for search, curation and preservation.
