Team Up to Make More Titles Available

LAVERGNE, TN - Ingram Digital today announced an agreement with the world's largest
university press, Oxford University Press (OUP), to make available a comprehensive
list of OUP titles through Ingram Digital's MyiLibrary TM platform, a leading
aggregator of online e-book and e-content resources.

means for students, faculty and other consumers of academic content," said James
Gray, President and CEO of Ingram Digital. "MyiLibrary customers will have access
to a highly respected catalog of both backlist and frontlist titles, including the
2008 e-book frontlist providing the most current and up-to-date academic information
to our users."

Under the agreement, MyiLibrary customers will have access to e-book versions of
Oxford Scholarship Online, the OUP 2008 e-book frontlist, as well as backlist

for research and teaching. The OUP 2008 e-book frontlist consists of 280 titles
related to the humanities, social sciences, business and medicine, all scheduled for
release during the 2008 calendar year.

collections of electronic information. Users can access content on an individual
title, publisher-specific or subject collection basis, depending on their particular
requirements. In addition, flexible authentication, comprehensive search and
retrieval capabilities and the ability for individual users to annotate and store
searches for access at a later date makes the MyiLibrary solution an indispensable
tool for academic library users. MyiLibrary also offers customers the benefits of
simultaneous multi-user access with no check-in or check-out requirements, no
plug-ins or readers to download, as well as functions like new title alerts.
