Founded in Glasgow, United Kingdom, collectionHQ was introduced to the public library market in 2008 as a solution that would empower librarians to integrate the Evidence Based Stock Management (EBSM) methodology into their workflow. The only tool to deliver data-driven action plans, collectionHQ expanded rapidly across the UK and into the U.S.A., Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Before long, collectionHQ was the most talked about new technology in the public library industry and was revolutionizing how librarians managed their collections. In 2011, collectionHQ was acquired by leading distributor of books and digital content, Baker & Taylor (a Follett company), which has supported growth and the innovation of cutting edge products. Today, collectionHQ continues to expand into new markets as a trusted partner of public libraries.
