Natural Stone Resource Library Surpasses 50,000 Downloads


Oberlin, OH and Chestertown, NY, August 15, 2017—MIA+BSI’s Natural Stone Resource Library has reached a new milestone of 50,000 downloads.

2017 MIA President Jon Lancto (Big Fish Consulting) commented: “50,000 downloads makes a clear statement that the Natural Stone Resource Library has become our industry’s go-to source for information about natural stone.” 2017 BSI President Daniel Wood (Lurvey Supply) agreed: “This incredible resource, a collection of the most comprehensive, up-to-date natural stone information in the industry, is the most valuable resource we offer. We encourage the industry to take full advantage of this free resource in order to be successful in specifying and utilizing natural stone.”

Launched in 2015, the Natural Stone Resource library houses all MIA+BSI technical documents, as well as resources from other industry associations. There are currently 272 documents available. All resources can be downloaded free of charge. The Library has become a trusted resource not only for stone companies, but also for architects, designers, and construction professionals.
