About us

Doing things differently

Meescan is creating a better library experience for everyone by liberating librarians away from the checkout desk so that they can do what they do best.
Working together

What's our secret? An amazing team.

Our team has more than 40 years of experience in the library industry...

...but more importantly, we are passionate about the work we do because we believe that libraries are the cornerstones of communities.

We're known for our efficiency, responsiveness, and how much we care about our partner libraries. We're here to help your library grow, innovate, and engage.

It's all about balance

Work hard, play hard

We work hard but we make sure everyone has fun too. After all, a happy team is a productive team!

As a team, we enjoy staff events like darts tournaments, kayaking, snowshoeing, and bi-weekly Social Hours with snacks and desserts. Individually, you’ll find our team members after work reading, coding, off-roading, hiking, camping, writing, gaming, and probably more hiking.

We have several office dogs: Charlie, Marvin, Cooper Benson, Beans, and Ripley. They enjoy treats, walks, barking at delivery drivers, and making sure we take enough breaks.


Our manifesto

Searchers of elusive truths. Retellers of famous fables.
Organizers of the world’s information.
Indexers and educators. Problem solvers and knowledge sharers.

To be a great librarian takes time.
Time spent talking and listening.
Entire afternoons of organizing.
Mornings hunkered down among the beanbags, telling tall tales.

Meescan sets you free. From the quicksand of the checkout desk.
From everything that stops you being great.

We call it Librarian Liberation.

Librarian liberation

Our promise

It doesn’t take political incompetence, social unrest, or economic oppression to start a revolution.
This one was caused by long queues at library checkout desks.

Meescan is here to lead it.
