Achieving a high degree of visibility with optimum reach in trade, libraries and end-customer business are the results of a well-designed and collectively organised data management, IT processes and marketing strategy.

Which measures promote automated, standards-compliant metadata supply and a data-driven marketing model for optimal data maintenance?

At NEWBOOKS Solutions our aim is to help publishers in all aspects of metadata management: on the data enrichment side through our classification and keyword indexing services; while on the software side through automated marketing by integrating participating publishers' titles in Approval Plans,, New Title Alerts, Catalogue Data Exports and Web Services.

Metadata Services mean:

  • Better discoverability of your titles through high quality, complete and timely metadata
  • Optimum reach through title listing in our NEWBOOKS catalogues, closely connected to library and corporate booksellers' clients.

Metadata quality is an issue of high strategic priority for us. In this context, the way in which NEWBOOKS enriches metadata for books, journals and online databases as well as prepares them for consistent and unified search adds significant value to our customer information and thus a sales relevant added value to us as a company.

  • Interest-specific information for customers, through thematic profiles in New Title Alerts and Approval Plans

No matter how good a book actually is, it sells only if it is being found. This can be made possible with high quality and in-depth metadata. Thus, the quality, completeness and timeliness of your metadata determine whether your book title can be found at all and who finds it. Perhaps then metadata is the most vital instrument for publishers to win and steer their readers' attention. The same metadata should also be usable for various other applications, resulting in cost-efficiency.

An equally important marketing challenge is to strategically abstract and select keywords/metadata tags in your book metadata to achieve better results in the discoverability of your book. Our professional team of experts can help you in this respect so that your book will be found precisely for the subject areas and current topics you want it to be.
