Metadata Management & Enrichment Services

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, Newbooks.biz, 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.

 Our partner for comprehensive and enriched bibliographic data from all English language publishers is Newbooks Solutions. They editorially enrich each single metadata record with BISAC, BIC and THEMA subject codes as well as additional keywords for our targeted marketing activities. What's more, their customer service is superb. I could not recommend them highly enough.

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.
