I think you all know that I love ebooks, particularly in my reference collection. My main gripe, the small independent publishers don’t have the resources to publish their titles electronically. Now, there is a solution. Yesterday, the Perseus Books Group launched Constellation – an eBook solution for independent publishers.
Constellation will convert print ready PDFs into .epub and other formats in order to distribute them to various eBook content providers. Ebrary and Overdrive are both on the list, in addition to Amazon and Sony.
Librarians, spread the word to your favorite independent publisher. Check out the press release from Perseus.
