Publishing Technology, PLC and the China National Publications Import and Export Corp. (CNPIEC), unveiled the Digital Gateway, a digital publishing platform for Chinese libraries.
Developed by Publishing Technology, the gateway was built on its pub2web online publishing platform; Digital Gateway is managed by CNPIEC. With semantically enriched content and interfaces in English and Mandarin, the site directly links international publishers to over 10,000 of CNPIEC's public and academic member libraries and potentially millions of new users.
The goal of the Digital Gateway is to extend the reach of international publishers into the Chinese market. CNPIEC is the largest company fully licensed by the Chinese government to import publications. The new site, in line with the government's long-term digital publishing plans, is designed to improve online access and discoverability of content in Chinese libraries.
