Wiley Announces Online Books Agreement with YBP Library Services

Jan 23, 2009

John Wiley & Sons, Inc. announced a new agreement with YBP Library Services, a Baker & Taylor company and a provider of materials to academic libraries. The agreement states nearly 7,000 Online Books will be available on YBP’s main collection planning and acquisitions tool, GOBI (Global Online Bibliographic Information). Under the agreement, YBP will add Wiley’s full range of online books, book series, and online reference works to its GOBI database, enabling YBP’s library customers to view and select online books alongside print and e-books, with no change to the library’s existing workflow. The result will be a fully integrated library acquisition process, from selection and profiling to ordering and invoicing.
