    About Us

    BiblioCommons builds SaaS solutions for public libraries. Our products are designed to make libraries’ digital presence meet and exceed users’ expectations for the modern web. They include BiblioCore, a catalogue with great search capabilities and tons of fun social features, and BiblioWeb, a content management and curation system that helps libraries build dynamic, content-rich websites. People go to the library to find books, but also to learn, to have fun, and to engage with their community. We help them do the same things online.

    Why work at BiblioCommons?

    We’re serious about innovation. We offer the first Digital Experience Platform for libraries, and we’re leading the industry with our responsive catalogue. We work hard to bring exciting products to a sector where they make a difference.

    Our user base is growing. We have a community of over 6.5 million users in more than 200 libraries across the continent and the globe. Our products are in libraries from Seattle to Boston, Vancouver to Ottawa, all the way to Christchurch, New Zealand, with more coming aboard all the time.

    We’ve got an amazing team. Our employees are smart, dedicated and fun, and we have a high level of collaboration within and between our project teams. Our office has demo sessions every Friday, followed by social time, and we hold company events throughout the year, like hackathons and all-staff activities.

    We’re a different kind of technology company for libraries, and a great place to work.
