Our History

Elevating the library experience since 1985

The Libero Story

Founded in 1985, and operating under the Libero business name since 1995, Libero Library Management Software was created to improve efficiencies and operations for library management and staff, and for building connections with members and the communities they serve. The software continues to evolve over time, responding to the ever-changing landscape and ways we connect physically and digitally.

In September 2021, the Libero business was acquired by Knosys Ltd, an ASX (KNO) listed company. Knosys is a leading SaaS provider headquartered in Melbourne, with specialist expertise in helping businesses manage information and knowledge. Knosys solutions enable organisations to make sense of information and use it to connect, collaborate and drive strong business outcomes for customers, employees, and stakeholders.

Knosys’ focus is on developing solutions that enable businesses to make the most of information and knowledge assets that sit within their organisation. This currently includes knowledge management, intranet and library management solutions. Libero delivers a robust and stable integrated Library Management System with little disruption and the elimination of downtime. The Libero solution is marketed and implemented via Knosys’ subsidiary Libero Systems Pty Ltd. 

Today, Libero is integral in facilitating a seamless interoperable platform to work with libraries unique and specific requirements for staff and members globally.

Knosys is an Australian public company, listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX: KNO) in 2015. All Australian company operations, including software development, project delivery and support are operated from Knosys’ Melbourne head office, and a team located in Brisbane. The company has offices in Brisbane, Germany, London and the USA.
