What Technology from SAGE has to offer

We believe that independence sustains innovation. It’s been baked into SAGE’s DNA since 1965. We’re making sure that each service holds on to the spirit of a startup, with a dedicated and passionate team. That means you’ll be speaking directly with the experts, not a call center.

An independent SPIRIT

Because we know the library is fundamental to learning and research, we’re passionate about how we can use technology to amplify its value and prepare for the future. These pioneering services do just that.  

AMPLIFY library value

Each service is backed by an established name you already trust. From our long experience of online publishing for librarians, we know what the biggest frustrations are for students and researchers. We chose these services for their deep expertise in solving them. And with our support, you can be sure they won’t be here today, and gone tomorrow.
