By Michael Rogers

  • Swets to handle publisher’s global sales
  • InterScience Online Books offers more than 2900 titles
  • Can generate usages stats for weeding

Wiley has hired subscription service giant Swets “to act as a global sales partner for its range of OnlineBooks,” the vendor said, adding that “the deal makes the entire range of electronic books material hosted on Wiley InternScience’s web platform available to order directly through Swets.”

Wiley InterScience OnlineBooks offers more than 2900+ titles in STM, business, the humanities, finance, and more, available in customizable packages.

Swets said that with “COUNTER-compliant usage statistics, libraries can review the usage of their Wiley InterScience OnlineBooks on a title-by-title level and annually swap out titles that are underused.”
