This exciting move is Axiell's first foray into the North American market. Axiell Group serves clients around the world in more than 40 countries.

Selago Design Inc. has been developing and supplying collections management and public access software for museums and archives for more than 20 years. Their flagship product, Mimsy XG, is used by organisations ranging from small business collections to large national museums.

"We are excited to join the Axiell team and look forward to providing our current and future clients with new and innovative products for years to come" says Selago Design CEO Andrea Boyes.

Axiell Group became Europe's largest supplier of Archive, Library and Museum software with the recent acquisition of the Dutch company Adlib Information Systems. Selago Design and Adlib have been working closely for the past few years. This acquisition strengthens that important collaboration.

Axiell serves libraries, schools, archives and museums with technically advanced and innovative solutions developed in close cooperation with its customers. More than 1000 library organisations with thousands of branches in the Nordic countries and in the UK use an Axiell library management system and Axiell Arena, a tool for the virtual library.
