Library has launched Sierra Library Platform for Academic and Research Libraries in collaboration with Naseej – the Arab world's leader in Knowledge Management Solutions – to automate the library's collections management. This is in line with AFU Library's strategic vision to distinguish itself as a dynamic gateway for the discovery, creation and exchange of knowledge, enabling students, faculty and staff to pursue knowledge and intellectual exploration through academic research, educational excellence, and experiential learning. AFU Library also seeks to materialize its mission for providing comprehensive, multi-disciplinary education to discover and develop knowledge via the required resources and learning services.
The Sierra platform is designed to go beyond the traditional tasks of academic and research libraries. Its broader range of services support librarians in their strategic objectives to provide cutting-edge knowledge services to patrons. Sierra leverages the latest in deployment options, data models and software design to make daily processes easier, more efficient and more integrated than ever before.
Sierra provides a powerful, modern foundation to build the future of library services. Combining complete functionality with the power and scale of an open services platform, Sierra frees librarians to create the kind of patron experience and management solution they have always wanted. Sierra offers flexible workflow support, including circulation, cataloging, acquisitions, patron management, and accounting management, in a unified staff interface.
