Hachette, Mackin Partner to Distribute Ebooks


Mackin Educational Resources, national distributor of PreK–12 books, ebooks and digital resources, has announced a new partnership with Hachette Book Group (HBG), beginning this month. As part of the deal, HBG’s entire catalog of more than 6,000 eBooks will be available to Mackin customers, on and offline, through their school’s exclusive MackinVIA platform.

“The inclusion of HBG’s titles adds a significant boost to the quality and quantity of titles MackinVIA serves,” says Randal Heise, Mackin’s president and co-owner. “With more and more publishers of HBG’s caliber coming on board, we have become the clear choice in a school’s decision on where they acquire their digital and printed content.”

Mackin’s proprietary digital resource management system, MackinVIA, aims to provide students and educators with simple and convenient access to the entire collection of eBooks, databases, audio books and video content a school has acquired.

All of the eBooks and digital content within the MackinVIA platform can be accessed through a variety of exclusive apps made for all devices including the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Android phones and tablets, Nook, Kindle, and Mac and PC desktop computers.
