We are delighted to welcome 19 new customers to collectionHQ and ESP since October last year, including Stadtbücherei Frankfurt am Main – the first library in Germany to subscribe to collectionHQ.

Events

At recent customer Forums in Manchester and London, we were delighted to see so many of our U.K. customers, some of whom have been using collectionHQ for more than 10 years. We invited attendees to share their collectionHQ best practice and enhancement suggestions which customers can read now in Community (in Academy).

We look forward to meeting with our customers across the globe at a number of national and regional events over the next 12 months. We have already announced some dates which you can view on our events calendar.
