BookSurge Brings Backlist Titles Back To Life

BookSurge LLC has arranged with major publishers to use BookSurge’s Print on Demand service to make their current, backlist, out-of-print and large print books available to millions of customers on and through other distribution channels. Participating publishers now include HarperCollins, John Wiley & Sons, McGraw-Hill, Pearson, Springer, Gale, Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, Princeton University Press, SAGE Publications, Kensington, Hal Leonard, LexisNexis, and the International Step by Step Association (ISSA).

The Print on Demand service also enables publishers to improve the availability of their midlist and frontlist titles on by combining on-demand distribution with physical inventory distribution. The service eliminates inventory risk for publishers because they no longer have to carry inventory for these titles.

“The Print on Demand service is ideal for publishers who want to bring back out-of-print or backlist titles as well as maintain in-stock availability of midlist and frontlist titles,” said David Symonds, general manager, BookSurge. “Printing books as customers order them, without carrying inventory, benefits both publishers and customers. Publishers can now maintain in-stock availability on, which improves sales. And customers can now order titles that would otherwise be unavailable and receive them the next day.”
