About Alibris UK
After a lengthy career as a college professor, Richard Weatherford began selling antiquarian books via specialized catalogs near his home in Seattle. Weatherford had long been a lover of old books and modern technology, so in 1982 he wrote up a business plan about a new company that would build an online database of hard-to-find books so those looking for them could find them easier. Initially known as Interloc, the company became the first successful online book selling platform. Today, having expanded to music and movies, Alibris operates in the three fastest growing areas of online business.
