Publishing Technology Building Content Delivery Platform for Chinese Libraries

Nov 29, 2011

Publishing Technology Plc. has partnered with the China National Publications Import and Export Corporation (CNPIEC) to bring the first digital publishing platform to supply content to Chinese libraries. The new site is expected to launch in China in 2012.

The site will use Publishing Technology's pub2web platform and will offer Mandarin and English interfaces. Publishing Technology will offer its 250-plus customers the opportunity to participate in the platform and supply content to the library market.

CNPIEC has more than 10,000 institutional users spanning academic and public libraries across China and is the largest company fully licensed by the Chinese government to import publications. Publishing Technology was formed in 2007 following the merger of Ingenta, VISTA, and Publishers Communication Group.
