Wiley secures Swets as Global Sales Partner for OnlineBooks

Wiley, a leading global publisher of quality scientific, 
technical, medical and professional content, is pleased to 
announce that it has chosen Swets, one of the world's leading 
subscription services companies, to act as a Global Sales Partner 
for its range of OnlineBooks. This deal makes the entire range of 
electronic book material hosted on Wiley Interscience's web 
platform available to order directly through Swets.

Wiley Interscience OnlineBooks are available in fully 
customizable packages of titles, adding flexibility to e-book 
collection development. Currently housing more than 2,900 
titles--with the number rapidly increasing--Wiley Interscience 
gives libraries access to top quality content in the fields of 
STM, business, the humanities, finance and others. With 
COUNTER-compliant usage statistics, libraries can review the 
usage of their Wiley InterScience OnlineBooks on a title-by-title 
level and annually swap out titles that are underused.

"We are committed to helping our customers gain access to the 
information they need in the format they choose," said Arie 
Jongejan, Chief Executive Officer of Swets. "Ordering OnlineBooks 
directly through Swets makes it possible for our customers to 
gain access to the wealth of information Wiley offers in the most 
efficient and economical manner possible."

"Wiley's collaboration with Swets will broaden access to Wiley 
InterScience Online Books and enable us to reach users around the 
world who may not have had access to our content in the past," 
said Eric Swanson, Senior Vice President, Wiley-Blackwell.  This 
advances our objective of delivering more content to more people 
than ever before in the history of our company."
