NASHVILLE, TN—January 22, 2013—As libraries adjust their lending models to meet today's digital requirements, more are turning to Ingram's MyiLibrary platform. Ingram Content Group announced it will now offer Random House U.S. titles to libraries via the platform.

"We are pleased to be working with a partner as respected as Ingram to further serve the library marketplace," said Skip Dye, vice president, Library and Academic Sales, Random House.

Random House will add more than 36,000 titles to Ingram's MyiLibrary eBook platform beginning in February. Titles will be both frontlist and popular backlist titles from all Random House imprints and each of their publisher-distribution clients, including Beacon Press, National Geographic Books, North Atlantic Books, Quirk Books, Smithsonian Books, Soho Press, Wizards of the Coast and many others.

The MyiLibrary platform is one of the fastest-growing eBook access solutions in the library community today. Used by thousands of libraries around the world, the platform provides a full-range of resources and purchasing options; from single-title acquisition to publisher and genre-specific subject collections. Ingram's coordinated eBook solutions give libraries meaningful tools to make the best use of budget dollars. Patrons that use the platform have the flexibility of obtaining content via download as well as mobile options where content can be read on the most popular e-reading devices on the market today.

"Libraries are continuing to adapt their collections and adjust their mix of print and digital content to meet the changing needs of patrons," said Dan Sheehan, vice president and general manager, Ingram Content Group library services. "Libraries that work with Ingram have access to the broadest and most comprehensive selection of content with immediate access to more than 11 million print, digital and audio titles. We are pleased to add Random House titles to our MyiLibrary collection for more readers worldwide to enjoy."
