Just in case there weren’t enough book competing with yours for attention on Amazon, they are out to add even more 🙂
CHARLESTON, S.C. – Oct. 5, 2010 – CreateSpace, part of the Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) group of companies, today announced an agreement with The Library of Congress to make at least 50,000 public books available through amazon.com.
“We are pleased to now give the public a way to enjoy print on-demand access to library collections around the world,” said Dr. Deanna Marcum, associate librarian for Library Services, The Library of Congress.
The Library of Congress and The British Library are the most recent organizations to work with CreateSpace Print on-Demand and Amazon Europe’s print on-demand business to give readers access to rare or out-of-print titles.
“Libraries are adopting print on-demand to give the public access to more works globally that may previously only have been available in a single country or even just in their individual physical catalogs,” said Dana LoPiccolo-Giles, managing director, CreateSpace. “We are looking forward to helping support The Library of Congress in its public access and preservation mission through our print on-demand solution.”
