Amsterdam, NL February 6, 2006. Amsterdam-based Medialab Solutions has entered a new distributorship agreement for its AquaBrowser LibraryŽ search solution product with Italian library solutions vendor Prime Source, an industry leader of library products in the Italian market.

Prime Source has achieved its practical library know-how through a decade of innovative use of open standard structures, as well as rigorous methods of promoting and managing the improvement of client business processes. All of this occurs within the context of creative activities and constructive sharing of internal and external company knowledge.

"Our activity is focused on business areas requiring software solutions and consulting & training services for creating, sharing and spreading knowledge inside and outside the firm. Our offer of vertical products and services are aimed at libraries, documentation centers, archives and museums," says Managing Director Tiziana Possemato.

"It's Prime Source's focus on the clients that really attracts us to this partnership in Italy," states Medialab's CEO Bastiaan Zwaan. "Our missions are similar which is important for two companies working closely together."

Prime Source will focus on AquaBrowser Library sales to their own AMICUS client base, as well as gaining new customers in Italy. AMICUS is an integrated library system used by libraries around the world.

Prime Source will be the exclusive distributor of AquaBrowser Library in Italy. AquaBrowser Library can support virtually any language, connect itself to a multitude of online resources, and be implemented with any integrated library system, and is therefore 'non-vendor-specific'. Librarians and patrons love the 'one-stop' location of resources, which stretch far beyond the catalog alone, as well as the ability to virtually 'browse the shelves' with the word cloud.
