AlKindi was born and, with it, the adventure began. Following the publication of the FRBR model by the IFLA, the board of the IDEO decided to implement it in AlKindi in 2010. When partner libraries joined us in 2018, the software AlKindi became a web application and was renamed Diamond, reserving the name AlKindi to the Islamic heritage portal inside Diamond, along with Albertus for medieval Latin heritage texts and Ignatius for Eastern Christian heritage texts. In 2021 the LRM-CS Association was created in order to take over the development and the distribution of Diamond.
