“We try to create as many opportunities as possible for our fans to connect with our brand in a visual way and Libris has been a huge part of that. Social and digital is all about being able to get people’s attention. Everybody follows hundreds of thousands of people on their feeds so how can we stand out, what visuals can we use to grab somebody’s attention in a cluttered digital space?“

- Julian Valentin, Assistant Director, Digital Media & Publications, Colorado Rockies

Hundreds of colleges and universities of all sizes use Libris.

Fast delivery makes it possible for teams to publish new content on social media and the website before the buzzer. Libris works with professional sports leagues, associations and teams.

    “Before, it was photo after photo being taken and not being used, not being used the right way, or just sitting on a server. I would say 80-85% of the photos weren’t being used properly. It’s so much easier to know what we have and to be able to share quickly.”

    Libris helps media brands cut steps from their workflow and publish content quickly to keep up with constant demand. Media organizations get more from their library by being able to use more creative assets to tell a story - social media teams use Libris to find images that didn’t make the front page, but might be a fit for Instagram. Libris works with a wide range of media outlets, including multimedia platforms and daily newspapers.

    “Creating galleries that live within subfolders and primary image categories makes for a really organized and robust photography library structure. It’s pretty segmented and layered out at this point because I’m using it for so many different reasons and purposes.”

    As people are more likely to buy a product after seeing a photo or video, Libris helps retail teams make visual assets readily available. Some retail brands use custom metadata to sort search results based on store location, color and SKU numbers while others use our open API to push images from Libris to their proprietary or third party platforms. Libris works with brick and mortar retail stores and e-commerce companies alike.

    “We have a huge body of assets of amazing photography and before Libris we just didn’t have a clean way of searching.”

Libris works with brands that provide consumer goods across industries.
