Infobase Wins Statewide Deal with North Carolina



New York, NY, September 16, 2014—Infobase Learning is pleased to announce that NC LIVE, North Carolina's statewide public and academic library consortium, has just signed on as a subscriber to Films On Demand. With this multi-year agreement, all library patrons across North Carolina will now have free access to this streaming video resource through www.nclive.org or via their local library's website.

This invaluable collection—which includes Films On Demand and Access Video On Demand content geared to academic libraries and public libraries, respectively—provides instant, unlimited access to thousands of full-length videos and video clips, many exclusive, from hundreds of top producers. Designed both to educate and entertain, the video content ranges from outstanding documentaries and award-winning educational films to independent films and helpful instructional videos on a wide variety of subjects. The tablet/mobile-friendly format, flexible access and integration options, convenient segments, full language support, dynamic citations, customization tools, and dedicated administrative and product support are among the numerous highlights of these resources.

"We are thrilled to have gained the subscribership of NC LIVE and be among the powerful array of digital resources provided to North Carolina libraries," said Mark McDonnell, president and CEO of Infobase Holdings, parent company of Infobase Learning and other subsidiaries. "This partnership extends the rich educational benefits of our streaming video collections to a very important base of library patrons and students."

"Today's libraries need to be able to deliver information in a variety of different formats," said Tim Rogers, executive director at NC LIVE. "With this deal, NC LIVE is particularly excited to be able to offer North Carolinians access to an unprecedented collection of highly regarded video content through their local libraries. We're certain that this addition will help libraries to better meet their patrons' needs in high-demand areas."
