In addition to our popular ebook-store, we provide services to book publishers. Digital Comps is a system that enables publishers to send secure ebooks to reviewers and instructors, called “complementary copies”. Ebook Engine is a system that enables publishers to sell ebooks direct to consumers from their own websites. And publishers use our Ebook Collections platform to sell collections of their ebooks direct to institutions.

The company hosts 1.7 million professionally published ebooks, including popular trade titles, and professional, educational, and scholarly texts. We hold them in the form of PDFs and EPUB files.

It deals elegantly with all the complexities thrown up by an evolving sector, including faulty files and metadata supplied by publishers.
