Partnerships: Wiley’s Reference Library (Launching in 2015) Will Be Powered by Safari’s PubFactory Platform

From Today’s Announcement:

John Wiley & Sons and Safari today announced a strategic partnership that will deliver the next generation in digital reference platforms for students, faculty and librarians.

Wiley Reference Library will combine Safari’s PubFactory platform with Wiley’s online reference portfolio. Wiley Reference Library will enhance the visibility and usability of Wiley’s acclaimed reference materials and will include entry portals for key subjects allowing users to search within a subject, within an individual reference work, or across Wiley’s entire reference portfolio.

Wiley Reference Library.com will be available in the first half of 2015.

Wiley and Safari have worked together since 2007, offering digital subscription access to numerous publications including Wiley’s For Dummies® series through the Safari platform. PubFactory was acquired by Safari in 2012.

The new reference library will feature 170+ major reference works and 600+ of Wiley Handbooks and Companions – a total of 230,000+ entries written by globally-recognized experts in their field.
