Springshare was founded in 2007 by Slaven Zivkovic, an ed-tech entrepreneur with a history of library innovations (fittingly, he also spent his undergraduate years as a library student assistant). Today we're among the fastest-growing library technology vendors, serving many thousands of libraries worldwide.
We are passionate about helping librarians shine in providing great service to users. The powerful brand and sterling reputation that Springshare has developed in the library world reflects our commitment to our libraries; we passionately serve them so they can passionately serve their users. And the best part is, we're just getting started!
