Higher education publishers are finding new ways to leverage existing content, provide enhanced services to unsettled buyers, and meet new needs for content delivery. The largest publishers, such as Wiley and McGraw-Hill Education, have created custom publishing platforms in which all content is stored digitally in a single database, indexed at its most granular level. This enables educators to search and custom assemble their own texts by mixing and matching chapters from different books and authors, as well as add their own content. MarkLogic’s Enterprise NoSQL database allows such publishers to combine all the data from disparate systems into a single repository.
