Innovative Interfaces, Inc. has expanded its international operations by establishing a new office in Dublin, Ireland. This office initially will be staffed by eight individuals. The company currently has a limited number of clients in this region, including The County Clare Library service and several academic libraries. In 2011 five libraries in Ireland and Northern Ireland, UK selected Millennium. Innovative already maintains European offices in the United Kingdom and in Spain, as well as several others throughout the Asia Pacific region.
This move follows the company's change in ownership status reported in previous issues of Smart Libraries Newsletter and the installation of a new management team. It can be taken as an early indicator of an interest to expand more deeply into selected international regions. Innovative has library clients in more than 50 countries throughout the globe. That number continues to grow as the Institute of Social Sciences Information recently became the first library in Vietnam to select Millennium.
