“We are pleased to announce this latest milestone for our network,” said Dane Neller , CEO of On Demand Books. “Our existing relationship with Google enables over 2 million public-domain titles to be purchased on Google Books. By registering our entire catalogue of over 7 million titles with Google Merchant Center, all of our content, including in-copyright and publisher titles, will soon be available for discovery and purchase on Google Books and through other Google e-commerce services.”
On Demand Books has been steadily adding publishers since the first EBM shipped a few years ago. Current publishers include Random House, HarperCollins, McGraw-Hill, Hachette, Simon & Schuster, WW Norton, Macmillan, and many others.
