Ingram Digital announces new eBook agreement with ALPSP

15 March 2008



The Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP) has selected Ingram Digital to provide a range of eBook services to ALPSP members. This starts with the establishment of an ALPSP eBook Collection (AeBC) programme based on the Ingram Digital platform, MyiLibrary.

ALPSP members will be invited to contribute titles to an ALPSP-branded range of subject-based eBook collections which will be offered to libraries and other institutions through the MyiLibrary platform. The Collection will also offer members the opportunity to upload a range of content including unpriced grey literature and research reports, as well as providing a secure route for their members to access the eBooks published by the host society or association.

Mark Carden, general manager for MyiLibrary in Europe said: ‘This agreement gives the members of ALPSP an easy and affordable way to create digital content and to distribute this to the global academic community. We are delighted to be working with ALPSP to create a special collection on the MyiLibrary platform, to help to promote it worldwide, and to continue to offer further services from the huge range of Ingram capabilities, including our CoreSource digital asset management and distribution system.’
