Zinio, NACS Media Solutions Partner to Create Collegiate Digital Newsstand

Zinio, a provider of digital publishing services, and NACS Media Solutions (NMS), a subsidiary of the National Association of College Stores (NACS), announced a partnership to develop the first all-digital online newsstand directed specifically at the college market. It will feature 3,000+ magazines and books suitable for reading through Zinio's UNITY platform, which enables online or offline access on any PC, iPhone, iPad, and upcoming supported devices.

The new collegiate digital newsstand, which will carry "Powered by Zinio" branding, will include a revenue-sharing arrangement for NACS members who wish to promote the site to their local college students. At a future point, Zinio and NMS anticipate developing private-label versions for NACS members who decide to deploy and promote their own digital newsstands.

The Zinio-powered NACS digital newsstand will debut in August 2010 at At the newsstand, users will be able to subscribe to periodicals and purchase books in hundreds of categories covering all interests. Students will have the ability to preview the newsstand's digital content before purchasing. Any purchase made on this newsstand will be available for reading on any device where a Zinio app is installed.

NACS is a nonprofit trade association representing the $10 billion collegiate retailing industry. More than 3,000 stores serving colleges and universities, as well as K-12 schools, in the U.S., Canada, and around the world, are members of NACS, along with more than 1,000 companies supplying goods and services to campus stores.
