Housed within Rochester Institute of Technology’s (RIT) Cary Graphic Arts Collection is the Bernard C. Middleton Collection, one of the finest resources in the world for the study of bookbinding history and practice.

And as ironic as it may seem, even a collection of books about bookbinding can find a place to call home in the online world. Kirtas and RIT today announced that RIT’s famed Middleton Collection is available on Kirtasbooks.com, joining the growing number of content partners providing collections and titles to the site.

Using existing information from the Cary Collection’s catalog records, Kirtas is able to offer access to the collection through its own retail site, kirtasbooks.com, as well as through the RIT Cary Graphic Arts Press Website, carypress.rit.edu. What makes this initiative unique is that the books can be offered for sale at cost-conscious prices before they are ever digitized, so there is no up-front printing, production or storage cost.

“We are delighted to participate in this ground-breaking venture with Kirtas,” said David Pankow, Cary Collection curator. “Imaging and innovation are the hallmarks of RIT and the Rochester community and our partnership with Kirtas is another example of that spirit.”

Kirtas currently has 12 partnerships with universities and public libraries to make special collections available for sale online. Virtually any library with a modern records database can participate in the Digitize on Demand (DOD) program. Distribution rights are non-exclusive so the books can also be made available through other distribution channels at a library’s request.

“We’re thrilled to have RIT on board as a partner in this initiative,” Kirtas Founder and CEO Lotfi Belkhir said. “Our business is built around providing high-quality images, and the historic role RIT has played in imaging technology is clearly significant to us. We’ve had a collaborative relationship with RIT on various projects in the past, and I’m glad we’ve been able to build upon it.”
