ASHEVILLE, NC and NEW YORK, NY- June 22, 2005 - Biblio.com, one of the world's largest suppliers of used, rare, and out-of-print books, and Muze Inc., the leading provider of entertainment content information, today announced their partnership to integrate Muze's comprehensive book content on Biblio.com.
Biblio.com will add Muze's enhanced book data on the site in the form of book reviews, synopsis and general information such as publisher, publication date, publishing notes, photos of the book covers, author biographies and much more.
"For the last couple of years Biblio has provided an exceptional service to buyers who knew precisely what they were looking for," said Kevin Donaldson, Director of Sales and Marketing at Biblio.com, Inc. "The key reason for Biblio's incorporation of Muze data is to provide a new type of buying experience for the Biblio.com customer. This new step allows us to be a shopping destination, where buyers can browse, and purchase on preferences."
Biblio.com has quickly moved up in the marketplace for used, rare and out-of-print books, having just reached a new benchmark of listing 20 million titles in their database as of the first of June 2005.
"With Muze's content together with Biblio.com's distinctive and extensive collection of books, consumers now have more knowledge at their fingertips," said Paul Zullo, founder and CEO of Muze. "Muze will give Biblio.com a unique way to create a personalized discovery experience, leading to increased customer loyalty, revenue, and an advantage over competitors in the market."
