More About Alibris
The Alibris connection has book, movie, and music lovers alike finding thousands of independent sellers. With over 60 million new, used, and out-of-print books, consumers, libraries and retailers will find a wide selection and value at Alibris.com.
The story of Alibris begins with Richard Weatherford, a bookseller who loved both old books as well as new technology. After earning a doctorate in English at UCLA and teaching college, he turned to selling antique books with catalogs from his home near Seattle. After realizing the potential of computer databases for the antiquarian book business, Dick wrote a business plan in 1982 for a company named Interloc. This company would help sellers to locate rare books.
Dick wasn't able to get his idea off the ground until 1993 when personal computers became more common and the Internet began to come into popular use. In 1997, the ease and power of Interloc attracted Marty Manley, who helped spread the business to a wider market. After doing research on taking Interloc online, Alibris was born in California where the first employees worked out of Marty's home.
Alibris is now a vibrant marketplace and one of the top online marketplaces for books on the web, specializing in online sales as well as used and out-of-print books. Alibris is able to thrive because of the loyalty of over a million business and retail customers as well as its dedicated staff.
