Recently Curran Associates, Inc. and IEEE extended their existing agreement for printing, distributing, and fulfilling IEEE conference proceedings worldwide. When this full service partnership began in 2008, there were approximately 700 unique IEEE conference publications per year. In 2011, they are expected to publish in excess of 1,200.
Curran will continue to compose electronic files into “on-demand” print editions, for those customers who still prefer print. In addition, Curran handles all orders, inquiries, and fulfillment services for IEEE conference proceedings publications, by phone and via their website -- www.proceedings.com. According to Kevin Dresely, IEEE Senior Manager, Conference Content Management, “Curran has played a key part in improving our print and online fulfillment services and overall customer service. As our business grows, we will continue to rely on Curran to help achieve our goal of providing high quality conference content to our customers around the world.”
Curran Associates also prints and distributes IEEE standards to customers around the world who request printed editions. In addition, the company manages standing order plans for over 1,200 unique conference titles, and is a valuable resource to librarians and booksellers around the world.
For over 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 sales agents, importers and library suppliers who play a significant role in making printed proceedings available for those who still prefer print.
