Welcome to the BIC Technology Excellence in Libraries Award (TEiLA) 

What is TEiLA

TEiLA is an annual accreditation scheme designed by BIC for libraries and their suppliers. The scheme encourages and rewards libraries and their suppliers for their adoption of best practice and industry standards and their investment in beneficial technologies. The scheme is directly aligned to BIC’s programme of work in the library sector over recent years. This includes the development of ‘full – cycle’ EDI, RFID, Bibliographic Information and Book Classification.
