The Library Corporation
Our Story

Today, we lead the charge to provide complete, seamless integration of eBooks and other digital resources directly into interfaces optimized for mobile touchscreen devices, utilizing the rich classification options afforded by the new RDA cataloging standard.

TLC offers attractive and easy-to-use software for our Integrated Library System customers. We also offer vendor-neutral access to SocialFlow for social media management, data services through ITSMARC, eBiblioFile, and RDAExpress.

Through Tech Logic we offer a full line of RFID, barcode self-check solutions, and automated material handling for any library worldwide. And through TLC•SmartTECH, we offer a full line of librarian-approved and curated third party, interactive hardware solutions.

While the library landscape continues to change due to ongoing corporate mergers and acquisitions, TLC holds true. The Library Corporation is celebrating over 40 years of providing library services to all libraries, from single-site installations to the largest and busiest systems in the world. TLC has over 5,500 installed customers worldwide.
