(Charlotte, N.C., 18 October 2013) – Baker & Taylor, the world’s largest distributor of digital and physical books and entertainment products, today announced that Macmillan’s entire eBook backlist catalog of more than 11,000 titles eBooks is being made available to all public libraries using the Axis 360 digital media platform.
In early 2013, Macmillan started a public library elending pilot program with a select group of backlist ebooks from its Minotaur Books mystery and crime fiction imprint. Now, in addition to the current inventory of romance titles and thrillers from Minotaur books, public library patrons can enjoy best-selling, classic and high-demand titles from all Macmillan imprints such as Farrar, Straus & Giroux, Henry Holt, Macmillan Children’s, St. Martin’s Press and Tor. Newly available titles from Macmillan will be added as they become eligible for sale on a monthly basis.
Baker & Taylor will make the complete Macmillan eBook backlist catalog available to all public library customers through its comprehensive Title SourceTM 3 and Title Source 360 selection and acquisitions tools. Patrons can then download and read the titles through Baker & Taylor’s Axis 360 digital media platform.
