CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Feb. 9, 2010 - Baker & Taylor Inc., the world's largest distributor of physical and digital books and entertainment products, today announced it has signed agreements to provide print-on-demand services - via its TextStream Digital Print Service unit - to Fordham University Press, University of North Carolina Press and Penn State Press.

"Three highly regarded university presses have put their trust - and the hard work of their scholarly authors - in the hands of Baker & Taylor's TextStream, which is becoming the premiere provider of print services for the academic market," said David Cully, President of Retail Markets and Executive Vice President of Merchandising/Digital Media Services for Baker & Taylor. "TextStream supports the university press community by delivering books on-demand, while academic publishers reduce their inventory carrying costs and the associated risk of product obsolescence."

The agreements with Fordham University Press, University of North Carolina Press and Penn State Press represent Baker & Taylor's latest success in expanding TextStream's presence in the publishing community. TextStream provides publishers with a full range of print-on-demand/short-run digital printing services with a wide variety of formats and other options. TextStream's flexibility and industry-leading customer reach make it especially advantageous to university presses by providing product to specialized audiences and academic libraries on an as needed basis.

"We are pleased to partner with Baker & Taylor to help us fulfill our mission of informing and educating the audiences we serve," said Fredric W. Nachbaur, Director of Fordham University Press. "We chose TextStream because of Baker & Taylor's reach and expertise within the academic library market."

By contracting with TextStream, the three university presses will have access to Baker & Taylor's wholesale distribution network of more than 44,000 retail and library customers worldwide.
