Baker & Taylor and OCLC NetLibrary announce expanded alliance
Baker & Taylor, Inc.( 01/14/2005 )
Baker & Taylor, the leading distributor of books, AV, and library services, and OCLC NetLibrary, the leading provider of eContent services to the institutional library market, today announced an agreement to combine their strengths to facilitate delivery of a broader range of eContent to the library market.
eBooks are full-text electronic versions of published books that library patrons can search, borrow, read, and return via the Internet. With NetLibrary eBooks, patrons can access library resources anywhere, while performing full-text searches across thousands of titles, and viewing books from their Internet browser.
With the increasing demand from libraries for electronic content and the clear need to deliver that digital content within today’s library acquisitions programs, Baker & Taylor and NetLibrary recognized the benefits their working partnership would provide to library customers. This agreement will result in a significant increase in the scope of eContent delivered to our customers within already established programs and workflows.
“This partnership is the perfect union of each company’s strengths to best deliver eBooks to our customers,” said George Coe, President Institutional Markets at Baker & Taylor. “To our customers, this collaboration will be virtually seamless. In the next few weeks, over 80,000 NetLibrary eBook titles will be available through Baker & Taylor, and B&T will incorporate these electronic materials into current collection development programs and approval plans.”
“This is an exciting opportunity for Baker & Taylor, NetLibrary, and the libraries we serve,” said Rich Rosy, Vice President of eContent for NetLibrary, a division of OCLC Online Computer Library Center, Inc. “It reinforces NetLibrary’s commitment to support libraries with both quality content and effective and efficient means for integrating digital content into standard library plans and programs.”
Baker & Taylor and NetLibrary will expand on the electronic distribution relationship established in 2001. The processes already in place from that earlier working partnership will enable the two companies to launch this new alliance with minimal transitional requirements.
