O’Reilly to Go Print on Demand

The technical publisher O’Reilly Media announced yesterday that it was abandoning traditional publishing methods and will soon start printing copies of its books as needed. The POD service will be handled by Ingram Content Group, the same company that has been handling O’Reilly’s print on demand needs for some time. Around 200 O’Reilly titles are already in the POD program, and more titles will be added as time goes on.

“Working with Ingram, we are one step closer to our vision of always available, always relevant, and always in stock,” said Laura Baldwin, president, O’Reilly Media. “With the enormous change we are experiencing in the industry, the traditional models of publishing no longer make financial sense. To be able to grow our publishing program while at the same time lowering our costs is a huge leap forward.”
