YBP Library Services to Distribute Gale eBooks

CHARLOTTE, NC / CONTOOCOOK, NH, March 13, 2009 -Baker & Taylor today announced a partnership between its subsidiary YBP Library Services and Gale, part of Cengage Learning, which enhances its digital platform in the Academic Library Marketplace. The partnership enables YBP customers to access the highly respected Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVRL) eBook collection through YBP's GOBI™ acquisition system.

GVRL offers nearly 3,000 reference sources from some 50 authoritative publishers on a robust, easy-to-use platform. Libraries have the flexibility to buy one or multiple eBooks, search through a single eBook, or search across an entire eBook collection. The collection grows weekly and covers a wide variety of subject matter ranging from current events to classics, and from arts and humanities to small business management.

"Collaborating with Gale will help YBP Library Services fulfill its mission to deliver the most diverse and highest-quality content to academic libraries using any medium they choose," said George Coe, President of Library and Education at Baker & Taylor. "Our customers will benefit from greater selection and simplified ordering, along with the superior collection development and acquisitions tools they already know and love."

"Many have declared 2009 the 'Year of the eBook' due to its sudden surge in popularity," said Patrick C. Sommers, president of Gale. "This is the first time we've partnered to distribute eBooks. We're delighted this partnership will make it easier for our academic customers to order, revise, and renew their eBook subscriptions using YBP's easy ordering tools and extensive collection management, cataloguing and workflow services."
