Exact Editions Launches Digital Books Service

May 17, 2016

Exact Editions, has launched a new digital books service. In partnership with four publishers, Exact Editions is using its expertise to deliver books in a new digital format, specifically aimed at the institutional market. The service launches with a range of books for the academic market, with titles across a variety of genres: history, literature, poetry, ecology, sociology, and biography, published by Carcanet, Seren, Liverpool University Press, and Permanent Publications.

The Exact Editions platform offers access across web, iOS, and Android native apps. Each book has an individual sales page in the Exact Editions institutional shop, and can be browsed using Exact Editions state of the art web reader. The digital books are purchased with IP authenticated network access, including support for remote access, across mobile and web platforms, with unlimited usage for anyone at the institution.

Using Exact Editions expertise in digitizing content, complex books can now be displayed with full respect to how they are intended to look in print. Each page appears exactly as it would on paper, with the added features of Exact Editions' advanced search technology, smart linking capabilities, and institutional functionality.

When purchased, the institution will receive an Exact Edition of the book, as a perpetual access acquisition, including no limits on the usage of the book, and instant availability for all users. In this way publishers will be able to utilize Exact Editions' experience in the institution market to deliver site-wide access in a way that has not previously been possible with digital book platforms.
