LYRASIS Buys BiblioLabs, Turns It Nonprofit

LYRASIS has acquired the BiblioLabs library technology firm (which offers the BiblioBoard platform) via a cash purchase and a charitable contribution from the owners of BiblioLabs. According to the press release, “The acquisition unites two organizations on the leading edge of library software and support services and transitions BiblioLabs from a mission-aligned for-profit firm into the mission-driven non-profit model of LYRASIS.” BiblioLabs will retain its current staffers, programs, and name as a division of LYRASIS. There will be no interruption of service or other disruptions for clients, subscribers, members, or partners.

“With BiblioLabs, we saw an opportunity to strengthen our existing eBook services and offer more value to our members and other public, academic and K-12 libraries,” says Robert Miller, CEO of LYRASIS. “By adding community engagement and local content creation tools, on top of the library-focused technology provided by our SimplyE/Library Simplified offerings, we can give users a seamless eBook management experience.”
