EBSCO Acquires Linked Data Leader Zepheira

EBSCO Information Services entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Zepheira, which provides libraries, archives, and museums with large-scale, decentralized linked data infrastructure. The company “uncovers previously hidden data and insights for patrons and facilitates connections between library systems and the open web. This acquisition reinforces EBSCO’s commitment to making information available when, where and how users need it.”

EBSCO and Zepheira had previously partnered in 2015, which included the creation of data enrichment services with NoveList Select. “Zepheira’s expertise and technologies combined with EBSCO’s resources, library collections and open web resources will bring advanced new capabilities to shared products and services. In the future, Zepheira’s linked data capabilities will have far-ranging applications across information discovery, resource management and stewardship.”
