is an international online marketplace
specializing in rare and collectible books
Biblio.com was established in 2000 in Asheville, North Carolina
, by Brendan J. Sherar and Michael C. Tracey.
Biblio.com announced a joint three-way agreement with Bibliopolis, LLC and Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America (ABAA) in April 2009, to provide a new e-commerce
site for ABAA members and their books.
Biblio.com provides BiblioDirector, an inventory management software that works on both Biblio and other marketplaces. Biblio.com provided Bookhound inventory management program for free to its sellers from June 2008 to December 2012. An updated version of Bookhound is still available for sale through Bibliopolis.
As of 2008, Biblio.com launched a complete overhaul of their site. Their new site was built on the Solr
search engine, a subproject of the Apache HTTP Server Lucene
project. The Solr search engine allows one to search by author, title, illustrator, data, among other parameters. Biblio's stated goal for search is to help customers find titles in as few clicks as possible.
Corporate structure and partnerships
Biblio.com is wholly owned and operated by Biblio, Inc., a privately held company. The company advertises its use of a triple bottom line
and runs in charity programs called Ecosend and Biblio Charitable Works, Inc.[better source needed]
Biblio describes itself as the first online book marketplace to offer carbon-free shipping through its Ecosend program, purchasing carbon offsets
for the shipment of every book sold through its site.
