Elsevier to provide content for Blio

According to a recent press release, Elsevier has entered into an agreement with Baker & Taylor to provide highly-formatted content for the Blio e-reader software application. Elsevier plans to launch 8,000-9,000 life science, physical science, and professional titles by the end of the year.

Blio debuted earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show and in February, John Wiley & Sons announced that it would be the first major publisher to provide educational and consumer content for the platform. Blio is an impressive platform that retains the layout, typesetting, fonts and pagination of a book; features print-to speech functionality; and is designed to run on devices such as tablets, computers, and iPhones.
