Publishers’ Forum

Based in Frankfurt am Main, the „MVB Marketing und Verlagsservice des Deutschen Buchhandels GmbH″ is a subsidiary of German Publishers and Booksellers Association – the „Börsenverein des Deutschen Buchhandels″. One of the MVB’s key products is the German central book catalog „VLB Verzeichnis Lieferbarer Bücher″ to which you can subscribe through NEWBOOKS Solutions. Combined with NEWBOOKS Solutions’ own catalog customers can receive a complete metadata feed that includes nearly all titles published in the German-speaking countries.

The strategic partnership between NEWBOOKS Solutions and MVB is primarily aimed at developing essential software and IT solutions for a central bibliographic catalog which will contain more comprehensive and better enriched and classified bibliographic data.

As a software partner, our goal is to provide the book industry with considerably improved ONIX 3.0 metadata and corresponding customer information systems such as VLB-TIX including alerting services, approval plans, preview services and more. Through joint software development, we aim to make publishers’ metadata management more efficient and more consistent, while at the same time optimizing automated metadata control through monitoring procedures and plausibility checks.

As a partner of the MVB we are also responsible for providing individual IT solutions and consulting in areas such as the development of company websites and online shop solutions. Other joint projects currently being planned will provide automatic indexing based on full texts for Libreka, the MVB’s eBook hosting platform. As part of this project NEWBOOKS’ unique Keyword Indexing software will be used for subject-specific indexing of metadata and full texts. As a consequence, recipients of our catalog raw data will receive even more valuable metadata through the enrichment of keywords and standard classifications.

Our newly established strategic partnership brings us much closer to achieving our common goals: simplifying maintenance, precise classification and automated metadata distribution for our participating publishers on the one hand, while also offering improved possibilities and systems for utilizing the already enriched bibliographic information for more targeted customer information to our partners in the book trade.
