Dedicated exclusively to libraries

bibliotheca was formed in the spring of 2011 when the three leading independent companies of bibliotheca (Switzerland), Intellident (UK) and Integrated Technology Group, ITG (North America) merged to create a single, global entity. In January of 2012, the Group was extended further with the acquisition of Trion AG, one of Europe’s leading AMH suppliers.

More recently, in October 2015, the Group was extended further when their shareholders (OEP) acquired in full the 3M Library Systems business, with the intention to create a single library-focused business dedicated to the delivery and support of EM/RFID security, Automated Materials Handling, self-service, productivity and digital/cloud (patron-facing) solutions.

bibliotheca is dedicated to the development of solutions that help sustain and grow libraries around the world. Our products are designed to provide a welcoming, intuitive and seamless environment for those that use the library – wherever they chose to use it - be that at home, on the move or within the foundation of the library itself.

We have direct operational offices in all major continents, together with dedicated distributors who offer our solutions across a further 70 countries. We are proud have over 30,000 unique libraries as part of our family, with a deployed equipment range in excess of 10,000 individual self-service units, 6,000 security systems and over 650 automated materials handling (sorter) systems. In addition, our digital platform features content from over 1,000 publishers and is available through almost 3,000 libraries.
