Lightning Source, PediaPress Join Forces for Wiki Book Project

Jun 10, 2010

Ingram's Lightning Source Inc. announced an expansion of its work with PediaPress, an organization that provides users with tools to create customized books from wiki content. According to the agreement, Lightning Source will support the PediaPress Create a Book custom book feature on the English language Wikipedia site with book manufacturing and distribution.

The Create a Book feature from Wikipedia enables a user to build a custom book from the articles chosen from their search on Wikipedia and other wiki sites that are supported by PediaPress' book creator feature. Upon the completion of content collection, the user creates a book title, adds an editor name and selects a cover photo from a group of images and photos associated with the content selected. Create a Book's English incarnation follows the introduction of identical applications on 17 other Wikipedia sites, including the German, French, and Spanish versions.
