Our mission is to maintain and develop the bibliographic and technological infrastructure for Danish libraries.
We make a serious effort in making the infrastructure as efficient and effective as possible and to ensure a quality which contributes professionaly and technologically to the development of the libraries.
A substantial import to develop such a quality is achieved through development in partnership, with relevant Danish and international partners among others, which can contribute with their competencies and technological know-how.
We also cooperate with relevant Danish and international companies, when they demand for services within our existing product portfolio in order to supplement their products.

TING Concept Community is an open source community for user driven development of ILS to libraries based on a service oriented architecture, which facilitates openness, synergy and reuse of the services on many different platforms.
