Helping libraries understand their book collections and coordinate regionally through data visualization and decision support tools.
Academic libraries rely on GreenGlass's data and visualization tools to help them understand the broad patterns and trends in their book collections, make informed decisions quickly, and coordinate work with other libaries in both their immediate region and across the country. There are over 300 academic libraries across three continents using GreenGlass to help manage their print and ebook collections.
Startup company Sustainable Collections Services (SCS) first approached Argentic to design and build the first version of their product, GreenGlass, in 2012. After three years of impressive growth, SCS and their GreenGlass product was purchased by OCLC, owner of WorldCat and one of the industry's leading technology and data providers for academic libraries.
After the acquisition, OCLC continued and expanded its partnership with Argentic, accelerating the pace of design and development of new features for SCS's flagship product. It is a partnership that continues to this day.
