Recorded Books and iVerse Media Form Partnership to Deliver Digital Comics and Graphic Novels to Libraries

Jun 25, 2015


BEST PRACTICES SERIES

Through an exclusive partnership, Recorded Books and iVerse Media will offer libraries and their patrons access to a selection of more than 10,000 digital comics, graphic novels, and manga titles both inside the library and remotely.

This partnership gives Recorded Books' international sales team the exclusive right to sell Comics Plus: Library Edition to public libraries in the United States and Canada. The Comics Plus product allows libraries to make the most diverse and unique content available to their patrons. As a result of this new partnership, libraries will have the flexibility to offer these titles either in a traditional desktop environment or via a mobile application for smartphones and tablets.

The service utilizes the new AccessILS platform to reduce the cost and time associated with developing application program interfaces (APIs) that integrate with the Comics Plus catalog. Access ILS was developed by mobile platform-as-a-service provider Boopsie.
