Ingram Content to work with five university presses

Ingram Content Group Inc. today announced that New York University Press, Penn State University Press, University Press of Kansas, Ohio University Press and the University Press of Mississippi have selected the company’s CoreSource digital asset management platform for the storage, management and distribution of digital content.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed in a release (read here).

Each of the new presses takes advantage of Ingram's print-on-demand services through Lightning Source.

Relatedly, the Penn State, Ohio, Kansas and Mississippi university presses have elected to use Ingram's CoreSource Plus, which manages the business relationship with e-book re-sellers in addition to asset distribution.

"The digital age provides new opportunities for the publication and distribution of scholarly content," Marcus Woodburn (pictured), Ingram Content Group vice president of digital products, said in the release.  "We are happy to welcome these new presses on board, and are pleased that Ingram's integrated physical and digital distribution solutions and worldwide market reach will have a role in helping the valuable content of these prominent presses easily get their content into the hands of educators, students and researchers."

Ingram Content Group Inc., which is headquartered in La Vergne, is a subsidiary of Nashville-based Ingram Industries Inc.
