By Alex Mutter

Publishers John Wiley & Sons and O’Reilly Media announced an agreement today that will see O’Reilly become online distributor for Wiley’s technology e-books, effective immediately.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Wiley,” said Pascal Honscher, General Manager for Corporate Development at O’Reilly, in a joint press release. “Partnering with another publisher, one that shares and embraces similar digital content ideals…is particularly gratifying.”

Nine Wiley imprints and over three thousand titles are included in this new e-book distribution model. Some of Wiley’s notable brands include Wrox, Sybex and For Dummies.

“We are excited to share our technology titles with the O’Reilly community,” said Peter Balis, Wiley’s Director of Digital Business Development. “Our relationship with O’Reilly will broaden Wiley’s reach to the professional technology community.”

Wiley e-books can now be purchased DRM-free and in a variety of formats from oreilly.com, with free e-book updates and lifetime access to purchased titles guaranteed.
