Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, has signed an agreement to acquire Innovative, a leading provider of integrated library systems for public, academic, and specialty libraries. Innovative will now become a business unit within Ex Libris. The Innovative products that customers have relied on for many years will continue to be supported and enhanced.
Ex Libris and Innovative have a long history of close collaboration with the user community and remain dedicated to working with their user groups—IUG, ELUNA, and IGeLU—in order to receive input and guidance for the enhancement of current solutions and the development of new ones. Both companies have a longstanding commitment to openness, and the joint organisation will continue to work with partners in the library and academic ecosystem for the benefit of customers.
The acquisition is expected to close in early 2020.
