XanEdu and SharedBook Agree to Merge

Custom course materials provider XanEdu will merge with the SharedBook publishing and compilation platform. The agreement, which includes SharedBook’s AcademicPub custom textbooks division as well as SharedBook’s noneducational operations, is expected to conclude within the next 30 days.

This merger creates a unified solution that combines technology and services across the custom course materials delivery spectrum. More than 1,000 institutions use XanEdu to order custom materials outside of traditional textbooks, clear copyright permissions, and deliver digital solutions. Institutions use AcademicPub to aggregate and order custom course materials to quickly build print or digital course packs. The company has more than 12 million copyright-cleared materials from publishers and professors.

“The combined value proposition for customers is immense,” says John DeBoer, XanEdu’s CEO. “Separately, we each solve different industry needs. Together, we become the best end-to-end provider in the market, providing both full-service and do-it-yourself options.”

Both companies will operate under XanEdu’s brand, and the employees of both companies will report to DeBoer.
