SAGE acquires Talis
In the UK, journal publishing company SAGE Publishing has acquired education-technology company Talis, along with its course list management system Talis Aspire, for an undisclosed sum, reports the Bookseller.
Used in over 100 universities in eight countries, Talis Aspire connects faculty members and students with library resources and allows librarians to use reading lists to make library purchasing decisions.
The acquisition allows SAGE to increase the ‘product portfolio beyond content-led resources into technology solutions that support teaching, learning and research in the higher education institution’, said SAGE in a statement.
SAGE senior vice president, global learning resources Karen Phillips said, ‘We are tremendously excited to support the growth and development of Talis’ suite of teaching and learning solutions for higher education.’
Talis CEO David Errington said, ‘SAGE’s investment in Talis will enable us to continue doing what we do and to grow faster, serving more students, faculty and librarians in the global higher education market.’
Talis will continue to be run as a separate business by its existing management as a SAGE company from its offices in Birmingham, UK.
