SAGE has purchased Adam Matthew, which is a primary-sources publisher for the humanities and social sciences. The announcement was made today at the Frankfurt Book Fair.

Adam Matthew is best known for digitising the Mass-Observation Archives at the University of Sussex, UK, the ‘American West’ project with The Newberry Library, Chicago, USA and a range of resources from The National Archives, Kew, UK. Adam Matthew's research and teaching collections, sourced from leading libraries and archives around the world, cover a wide range of subject areas from medieval family life to 20th century history, literature and culture.

Adam Matthew will continue to operate under its existing management from its offices in Marlborough, Wiltshire, UK and Chicago, IL, USA. SAGE sales representatives plan to work closely with the Adam Matthew team to bring the portfolio to a wider international audience, building on the experience gained working as the Adam Matthew agent in the Middle East since January 2012.

Stephen Barr, president, SAGE International said: 'We have seen the strong reputation Adam Matthew has built with the library community. As a major independent academic publisher, SAGE is ideally placed to help Adam Matthew grow its international reach without compromising on its company values; we are confident this is a move that will be welcomed by our library partners.'
