Founded in 1983
In 1983, SIMA started serving the law library community in the Washington, DC area by offering high-quality loose-leaf filing services.

When technology advanced, began offering library-automation software
As technology advanced in the 1980s and 1990s, SIMA began offering library-automation programs designed by the company's general manager, an experienced professional law librarian. From the beginning, SIMA software has been extremely user friendly, full featured and highly affordable. Separate library-catalog, serials (including acquisitions and accounting) and interlibrary-loan programs were followed by fully integrated library systems.

Became one of the library community's first Application Service Providers
In 1999, SIMA introduced its innovative SIMAnet system that gave customers direct access via a Web browser to their SIMA library programs installed on SIMA's Web servers, thus becoming one of the very first Application Service Providers among library vendors.

Introduced advanced, Web-based integrated library systems
In 2006 SIMA introduced its newest version of the popular SIMA Camelot Integrated Library System, a totally Web-based program called SIMA Camelot Online which has been continually updated with new features and capabilities.
