A Global Industry

The library technology industry increasingly functions globally, with many organizations involved in diverse countries and regions. I find it quite interesting to study the international dynamics at play among the organizations that provide technology products and services to libraries. Many of those familiar here in the United States are also active in other countries. Other companies, well known in parts of the world, would not be recognized here. As I cover the library technologies for Smart Libraries Newsletter, I try to provide exposure to some of companies and products that may not yet have a presence in the United States. They offer a different approach that might expand our thinking about a given area of library technology.
