John Wiley & Sons, a leading publisher of scientific, technical, and academic books, has agreed to provide Bookshare, the online accessible library, with digital files for its collection.
Bookshare, a cooperative project led by Benetech, is the world’s largest online library of content for people with print disabilities. The library offers over 100 thousand titles, including reference works, textbooks, children’s books, newspapers, and magazines. eBooks can be downloaded in the latest DAISY (Digital Accessible Information System) and BRF (Braille Ready Format) file formats.
“Wiley strongly believes in supporting people with disabilities. Our commitment to Bookshare is an extension of our longtime commitment to provide Wiley content to all interested readers in whatever format best serves their needs,” said Susan Spilka, Vice President, Corporate Communications, John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
Bookshare will now be able to provide access to a wide selection of Wiley titles published under its various imprints: For Dummies, Frommer’s, Webster’s New World, Cliffs Notes, Wrox, and others.
