Curran to Compose, Print, and Distribute IEEE Conference Proceedings Worldwide
Red Hook, NY, December 11, 2008 – Effective today, Curran Associates, Inc., begins executing on an exclusive, full service partnership with IEEE for the composition, printing, and fulfillment of more than 800 unique conference publications per year, including conferences held from 2006 onward.
In this new partnership, Curran will compose electronic files into “on-demand” print editions, for those customers who still prefer print. In addition, Curran will handle all orders, inquiries, and fulfillment services for IEEE conference proceedings publications by phone and via their website -- www.proceedings.com. According to William O’Connor, IEEE’s Director of Marketing Operations, “Curran Associates currently provides proceedings print services for over 200 professional engineering societies and publishers, and they have a reputation for quality and timely service”. The President of Curran Associates, John Curran, put it this way, “partnering with the world’s premier publisher of conference proceedings really gives us an opportunity to show the rest of the world the valuable services we can provide”.
Curran Associates also manages standing order plans for over 1,200 unique conference titles and is a valuable resource to librarians and booksellers around the world.
For nearly 25 years, Curran Associates, Inc. has been focused on marketing and selling conference proceedings to science and technology libraries around the world. The company also has a unique service arm that works with technical and society publishers to offer “on-demand” printing of proceedings that are otherwise only published in electronic format (CD, DVD, USB, or web server). In addition, the company has a global network of importers and library suppliers who play a significant role in making printed proceedings available for those who still prefer print.
