About Library Lever

Library Lever has redefined the procurement process. We deliver practical, real-world, evidence-based solutions for sustainable library collections.  

We are a team of passionate industry professionals on a mission to create a world in which libraries and publishers work together towards the same goals:  A world where all learners are provided equal opportunity to thrive through access to authoritative content and modern technologies.  A world where decisions are driven by data, and success is measured by impact.

Our Vision

To realize a new culture in which libraries and publishers work in tandem, driven by the shared mission to build sustainable collections, ensuring all learners are provided equal opportunity to thrive through access to authoritative content and modern technologies.

Our Mission

To build equitable business practices and sustainable library collections by engaging library leaders and publishers in transformative conversations, promoting an ecosystem based on transparency of purpose, data-driven decisions and purposeful collaboration, committed to the development of sustainable solutions and learner-centric outcomes.

Our goal is to provide a comprehensive portfolio of resources for our library members, while also investing in their well being and professional development through our Library Lever Academy, a key benefit of membership. Additionally, even if you are currently purchasing through a regional consortium, you can look to us to fill gaps. We especially excel in working with newer technology companies who are entering the library market.
