ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The 3M
Cloud Library eBook Lending Service will add titles from Hachette
Book Group to its catalog of offerings, giving readers access to books
from popular authors including James Patterson and Nicholas Sparks.
Hachette Book Group’s full eBook catalog will be available to libraries
with no delay on new titles.
The new agreement with Hachette Book Group means that 3M Cloud Library
now offers content from all of the Big Six publishers. The service’s
continuously growing list of publishers now numbers more than 300.
“3M Cloud Library aspires to achieve the breadth and depth of the best
public libraries’ collections, to ensure that readers of all tastes find
the perfect book,” said Tom Mercer, marketing manager, 3M Cloud Library.
“We continue to build a diverse, multi-language collection with
relevance, balance, and richness for all readers."
The addition of Hachette Book Group titles follows a successful pilot
program, during which 3M was able to provide compelling data to the
publisher on sales and circulation for its books. Since its launch in
2011, the 3M Cloud Library has lead many such programs, helping
publishers gain a greater understanding of the eBook marketplace.
