San Diego, California-based library vendor Soutron Global announced the addition of the Canadian Copper & Brass Development Association (CBBDA) to its growing global library information management client base. A member of the International Copper Alliance, Ltd. (ICA), the mission of the CBBDA is to promote and develop the use of copper. The CBBDA is based in Ontario, Canada.
Mrs. Knapp, CBBDA Library Manager and Chantal Olynyk, Librarian, stated “We have chosen Soutron as a means to keep pace with the ever-changing technological world. Its user-friendly interface will meet our needs and the needs of our members for current and future cataloguing. We are impressed with their dedication and knowledge of their product as it applies to our requirements.”
“Our goal at Soutron Global has been to partner with our clients to manage library transformation by providing the best technology in the most cost effective manner,” stated Tony Saadat, Soutron Global President and CEO. “We are extremely honored to have CBBDA join the Soutron Global family.”
According to Soutron Global, the “CBBDA has a multi-level commitment to communicate the unique sustainable metal characteristics of copper, as well as copper’s role as a human health essential element.” Association members include industrial and commercial users of copper and copper alloys, government agencies, educators, and the general public.
To these members, CBBDA communicates issues affecting the copper industry, such as building codes, planning codes, electrical codes, environmental regulations, and health and safety matters. The CBBDA’s technical library and expertise are maintained and developed in order to be the major authoritative source of information regarding copper-based material production, fabrication, and applications.
The CCBDA Library’s holdings, collected since 1960, include technical periodicals and journals, monographs, proceedings, standards and codes, and research reports. These holdings enable the CBBDA to authoritatively act as a communications and advisory group for the copper industry, providing knowledge management services.
In order to continue to be a leading source of information regarding copper and copper alloy applications, the CBBDA technical library recently selected the Soutron Global digital library and information management software solution. Canadian Copper/Cuivre Canadien is the periodical of the CCBDA. Published regularly since 1960, articles cover copper applications such as mining and refining, plumbing, natural gas systems, electrical equipment, wire and cable, architecture, roofing, cladding, forgings, and castings and ingots.
