From a press release issued by PTFS on Jan. 13, 2010:

Progressive Technology Federal Systems, Inc. (PTFS), a library solutions provider and developer of the ArchivalWare digital library and content management software, has announced it will acquire LibLime, provider of open-source software solutions for libraries. The transaction is expected to close before the end of January 2010.

This acquisition expands PTFS’s existing U.S. and European open-source library solutions business. LibLime will accelerate PTFS’s Digital Library System (DLS) initiative, an integration between the Koha ILS and ArchivalWare. The DLS solution will provide libraries and information centers with a single toolset to manage all of their collections – print and digital.

PTFS will integrate its library solutions team with the LibLime team, including LibLime’s founding CEO, Joshua Ferraro, who will continue to lead LibLime’s current development projects to conclusion. PTFS’s LibLime division will bolster enterprise-class support resources for a combined customer base of over 800 special, public, and academic libraries.
