Ingram Content Group Inc. announced the launch of an on-demand print and fulfillment journals program. Ingram Content Group's solution provides publishers with the tools to manage their print journals, from file set-up to print on demand to delivery. From a website, publishers can upload and manage content and subscription lists, designate fulfillment requirements, place print orders for direct delivery to their subscribers, as well as order one-off issues for claims fulfillment.
Ingram will begin printing on-demand journals in March for publishers worldwide from its Tennessee location and has plans to expand journal manufacturing to its other locations soon.
Additionally, Vital Source Technologies, Inc., Ingram Content Group's e-textbook solution for publishers, academic institutions and students, announced that it has expanded the reach of its VitalSource Bookshelf platform through Desire2Learn, a provider of learning solutions.
Desire2Learn provides an open and extensive platform to over 700 clients with more than 8 million learners in higher education, K-12, healthcare, government and corporate sectors. As institutions integrate more multimedia content into their curriculum, Desire2Learn's work with Vital Source will provide learners with access to the new and relevant e-textbooks.
