Mary Evans Picture Library is delighted to announce its purchase of Ardea, one of the UK's leading wildlife, pets and environment picture libraries.

Sophie Gooders, current owner of Ardea, which was started more than 40 years ago by Sophie's mother Su, has decided that it is time for her to move out of the industry. However, having put so much of herself into the picture library and with so many friends amongst the photographers, Sophie did not just want the collection to be absorbed into another library and lose its identity.

In June, the new edition of the Ericsson Mobility Report was released and reveals what many of us in the communications industry anticipate – that mobile-data traffic will continue to grow significantly in the coming years, driven mainly by video.

On both sides of the Atlantic, we want to do all we can to move our economies forward and create jobs given the economic climate of the past several years.
