1 May 2004 is pleased to announce its expansion with the recent acquisition of Oxford Scientific Films (OSF). The OSF stock footage and image libraries are world-renowned collections illustrating the diversity of the natural and scientific world. The collection consists of over 350,000 images and around 2000 hours of footage.

Oxford Scientific will continue to be known for its focus on wildlife, nature and science and will fit alongside our general library under the banner. In the next few months a fully e-commerce enabled website for OSF will be launched. This will allow the merged group to continue in its strategy of providing the UK picture buying community with unbeatable service and fantastic imagery with easy accessibility.

Glenn Parker Photolibrary CEO says "This acquisition provides the group with a range of footage and images that cannot be obtained through our normal content channels. It opens up a whole new market place for us in the form of footage and also provides an additional resource in the creative area. We believe that we can further build OSF's success via our client-focused sales and marketing and an excellent web delivery of content via both our general site, and our new natural world website via Oxford Scientific Films"
