Witherby Publishing Group has reached agreement with the IMO to provide IMO publications as eBooks.
Publications such as MARPOL, SOLAS and the IGC code are now available to download online, and can be viewed via a Witherby Seamanship eBook reader.
The eBook reader is a software program created specifically for the maritime industry, and designed to manage a variety of published books, information papers and reports from industry organisations, such as SIGTTO, INTERTANKO and OCIMF.
It is available as a free download and allows for reading, referencing or searching of over 500 marine books.
“We are delighted to add the IMO’s range of publications into our eBook reader,” said Witherby managing director, Iain Macneil.
“This has been demanded by the industry for some time now and will allow ships and their operators to manage all their codes and guidance in a single eBook reader, with all the powers of targeted search and instant reference that this will bring.”
