Yale law library picks Innovative platform

Share this on social media:

The Lillian Goldman Law Library at Yale Law School is now live with the Sierra Services Platform from Innovative Interfaces.

Sierra is said to be built on an open-systems architecture that provides a library with access to its circulation, technical services, and patron data though an open relational database and a suite of documented application interface extensions. This is the first law library to install the new system and is among over 790 libraries that have selected Sierra to date.

'Because the database structure is now on an open platform we look forward to a new level of access to the database to produce custom reports and to interface with third party applications,' commented Mary Jane Kelsey, associate law librarian for technical services.

Innovative expects general release of Sierra later in 2012.
