Helsinki, 20 February, 2006 — Oxford University Press is starting delivery of electronic books through Finnish Ellibs, an e-books provider, and its Web Library. Ellibs Web Library is used by over 300 university and college libraries, as well as information service organisations in Finland, Sweden, and the UK.

Ellibs has also developed an application package for the production and management of study materials, Ellibs Education. The service is based on the Internet and used through a web browser.

In the spring of 2006, the company will launch a package combining services aimed at libraries and information service organisations, that will form the Semantic Library. The Semantic Library will allows users to attach various semantically important issues, such as feedback, comments, enquiries, and conversation, to e-books, linking the books with various factual connections.
