John Wiley & Sons Partners with Safari Books Online
John Wiley & Sons Inc. has reached an agreement with Safari Books Online, an on-demand electronic reference and learning platform, to offer selected Wiley business and technology titles in Safari’s Books Online Library (www.SafariBooksOnline.com). As a result of the deal, Safari customers now will be able to access and search the contents of these titles, including Wiley’s “Bible” and “For Dummies” series.
Sebastopol, Calif.-based Safari Books Online is a joint venture of two other technology publishers, O’Reilly Media Inc. and Pearson Technology Group. Safari’s library offers a fully searchable database of titles from these two publishers, as well as its other publishing partners, including Peachpit Press, Microsoft Press, Addison-Wesley and others. Safari customers typically include IT, business and creative professionals.
“Safari Books Online, an increasingly popular on-demand reference library, is an excellent channel partner for us, and will ensure enterprise and individual access to Wiley titles globally,” says Kristin Kliemann, vice-president and director, global rights, John Wiley & Sons.
