Grey House Publishing will become the publisher of the print editions of the H.W. Wilson product line under a new exclusive license between EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) and Grey House. Wilson publishes a range of reference work for the library markets and is best known for Readers’ Guide to Periodical Literature, first published in 1901. Grey House will maintain the publishing schedule of the Wilson list, under a joint imprint, beginning April 1. Sales of the list will be supported by Wilson/Grey House in-house sales team, library jobbers and indie rep groups.
Among Wilson’s other products migrating to print through Grey are Abridged Readers’ Guide to Periodical Literature, Senior High Core Collection, Middle & Junior High Core Collection, Children’s Core Collection, Fiction Core Collection, Public Library Core Collection: Nonfiction, and Book Review Digest. “Grey House is proud become the print publisher of this historic and important publishing program,” says Richard Gottlieb, president of Grey House.
The deal with Wilson comes shortly after Grey House and EBSCO announced that Grey House would become the publisher of the print editions of the Salem Press product line. First titles to be published under that agreement are currently at the printer.
