Once your book is close to publication you need to list it on our database along with its basic bibliographic information. By doing so you will ensure that both retail and library customers have pre-publication information for your print and e-books as soon as possible. Booksellers and librarians use our database to search and purchase books, and online retailers use your listed bibliographic data to populate their websites.

When you are publishing your title, your focus will include identifying how to get it discovered by readers. The best way to do this is to make sure booksellers and librarians have access to your book information via our services. The more information available about your book the more likely they are to discover and buy it.


Our research shows that the more metadata elements you include in your title record the more likely it is to sell.

Our Editorial Team will manage your information, ensuring accuracy, consistency, timeliness and completeness of your records, which will give your titles the competitive edge when viewed by book buyers around the world.
