Penn Libraries and Kirtas Technologies team up to make more than 200,000 books available for research and purchase
Kirtas has announced a partnership with the University of Pennsylvania Libraries to make over 200,000 titles available to the public in a unique way. "Using existing information drawn from Penn's catalog records, Kirtas is able to offer out-of-copyright books for sale through its own retail site, www.kirtasbooks.com. What makes this initiative unique is that the books can be offered for sale before they are ever digitized, so there is no up-front printing, production or storage cost"
