Publishing Technology, which provides software and services to the publishing industry, has announced the launch of three new pub2web websites: PierOnline (for Sunmedia), the World Bank eLibrary, and the OECD iLibrary. pub2web provides custom web platforms, tailored to any business model and any type of content.

PierOnline (developed for Sunmedia) is Publishing Technology’s first venture into the Japanese market. It hosts 36 journals from seven Japanese publishers and has a full Japanese-language interface. The OECD iLibrary is the prime vehicle for disseminating the OECD’s intellectual output containing some 390 complete databases, 2,500 working papers, 5,500 books, 14,000 tables and graphs, 21,000 chapters and articles in a range of languages. The World Bank eLibrary is described as the world’s most authoritative source on international development. It is the portal to full-text books, reports, journals, working papers and other formal documents from the World Bank, available for individual purchase as well as subscription-based download.

Louise Tutton, chief operating officer of Publishing Technology's Scholarly Division, commented: 'This trio of launches carries significant strategic importance for pub2web and represents the vast range of content types and functionality supported via the platform. With technology evolving at a rapid rate and new business models, such as patron driven acquisition, emerging the pub2web platform combines a proven, industry standard base with sophisticated information commerce and semantic web technology, allowing publishers to experiment within a low risk environment at a pace that suits them'.
