Publishing Technology to build UN e-collection

Publishing Technology is to build the United Nations e-collection.

The publishing software services provider has signed the UN e-collection to its pub2web platform, which allows cross-searching, discovery and sales via pay-per-view or by subscription for over 1,500 publications produced by the international organisation, as well as all forthcoming titles including e-books, reports, periodicals and selected grey literature.

Valentina Kalk, from the department of public information for the UN, said: "Going digital is a big step for us, but more exciting is having UN publications in a format capable of opening up strategic opportunities for us in the future."

Louise Tutton, chief operating officer of Publishing Technology’s online division, said: "With 40 new agreements so far this year, we are continuing to build on the success of our state-of-the-art solutions to the unique challenges of digital publishing."
