History of iUniverse
iUniverse was founded in October 1999 and quickly became the leading provider of publishing technology solutions. The company initially focused on business-to-consumer (B2C) print-on-demand publishing with two facets: new title publishing (through the Writer’s Club Press imprint) and back-in-print publishing. Barnes & Noble invested in the company and soon started offering iUniverse books for order online and through Barnes & Noble retail stores.
