Baker & Taylor, Inc.( 07/12/2001 )
netLibraryTM, the leading provider of eBooks and Internet-based content/collection management services, today announced a new eBook distribution alliance with Baker & Taylor. Baker & Taylor, together with its subsidiary YBP Library Services (YBP), is the leading supplier of book products and services to public and academic libraries.
"This alliance between two industry leaders underscores the growing interest in netLibrary eBooks and netLibrary's commitment to support the way libraries conduct business today," said Rob Kaufman, Chief Executive Officer and President of netLibrary.

"This agreement will broaden Baker & Taylor's product line and extend netLibrary's reach into public and academic libraries across the United States. Libraries will benefit from increased efficiencies in collection development and acquisitions by consolidating eBook orders into their existing accounts with Baker & Taylor and YBP, allowing them to have one point of contact for their print and eBook orders.

We are delighted to be able to offer netLibrary's eBook solution to our customers and we intend to offer netLibrary's eBook solution as a fully integrated part of our collection management services very soon."
