Red Hook, NY, January 15, 2009 – During the last couple of weeks of 2008, as many libraries around the world were finalizing their 2009 conference proceedings acquisition plans, Curran Associates completed their purchase of InterDok Corporation’s Acquisition Services business.
For more than four decades, InterDok has been a leading conference proceedings specialty company, offering librarians and researchers valuable services to help them acquire published literature produced from technical conferences and symposia. John Curran, President of Curran Associates explained, “As InterDok’s business model evolved, they looked for a company that could best provide their long standing engineering and corporate library customers with expert services and high quality customer care. They found that in Curran Associates.”
Curran Associates already manages standing order plans for over 1,200 unique conference titles, and is a valuable resource to many of the same libraries that InterDok has served. “Adding InterDok’s Acquisition Service business to our existing services is one of the most efficient ways we could grow our business," says Curran. “It’s simply more of the same.”
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.
