Share this on social media:

Five libraries in the Middle East and the Arabian Peninsula have selected the Sierra Library Services Platform from Innovative Interfaces. The new contracts were completed through Naseej, the exclusive provider of Sierra and related Innovative products.

The new Sierra libraries include: Holy Spirit University of Kaslik, Emirates College for Advanced Education, Institute for Applied Technology (part of Abu Dhabi Centre for Technical and Vocational Training), University of Sharjah, and American University of Cairo.

Mark Middendorp, Innovative's director of partners and alliances, said: ‘Innovative is dedicated to libraries worldwide and the partnership with Naseej reinforces this commitment in the Arab World. It's gratifying to see that Innovative products are embraced by new libraries in the region and that existing customers are extending their relationships with us.’

Eng. Abdullah Al Turaifi, vice president of Naseej, commented: ‘The strategic partnership with our customers in the region enabled us to offer them the Sierra platform that will meet their needs, today and tomorrow, as well as the expectations of their patrons.’
