Six University Presses Sign With Ingram’s CoreSource for Digital Asset Management and Distribution
(PRESS RELEASE) NASHVILLE, TN – More university presses are now spending more time on creating new and relevant content for their readers, while leaving the distribution of their e-books to Ingram Content Group Inc. through its digital content distribution system, CoreSource.
“The digital age provides new opportunities for the publication and distribution of scholarly works,” said Marcus Woodburn, Vice President of Digital Products, Ingram Content Group. “At Ingram, we are pleased to collaborate with university presses nationwide on the creation of a program that supports their publications. We continue to develop comprehensive print and digital solutions to help content reach educators, students and researchers in the formats they choose.”
The most recent university presses that have selected CoreSource for their digital asset management and distribution needs are The University of New Mexico Press, University of South Carolina Press and Indiana University Press. The presses have also elected to use Ingram’s CoreSource Plus option – an Ingram service that manages the business relationship with re-sellers in addition to asset distribution.
The University Press of Florida, University of Virginia Press, and Wesleyan University Press recently enhanced their CoreSource relationship with the CoreSource Plus option.
“Working with Ingram, we can reach more readers and researchers through CoreSource,” said Kathryn Caras, Director of Electronic and Serials Publishing, Indiana University Press. “In addition, since Ingram is an integrated print on demand and digital distribution company we simplify our business while expanding our global reach.”
As university presses adjust their business models to meet today’s digital requirements, more are turning to Ingram for flexible and integrated print and digital solutions to reach more students, educators and libraries. These six presses join Princeton University Press, University of Michigan Press, University of Pennsylvania Press, University of California Press, University Press of Kentucky and others that are already using Ingram’s CoreSource platform.
