"Our goal at BiblioCommons has always been to create an online experience that is as rewarding and personalized as a great in-person library experience," says Marty Tarle, SVP of Operations, BiblioCommons. "The process of discovery and engagement with a library's collection and services are fundamental to that goal, and we're thrilled to be collaborating with so many more library partners across the U.S." Many of the implementations for the services listed above have already begun, and all of the new library partners will be live on the BiblioCommons platform in 2021.
