NEWBOOKS Solutions is specialized in supplying booksellers and information providers with complete and enriched metadata from all publishers in the English- and German-speaking world, in order to provide them with accurate and comprehensive title information to use in their websites, sales and marketing activities etc.
The way this works is that we regularly receive bibliographic metadata from English and German speaking publishers and this data is then manually processed, enriched and classified by our NEWBOOKS editorial team, before being supplied to our partner booksellers. Our customers include many of the leading specialist booksellers and library suppliers in Germany, Europe, and ROW. Booksellers either receive consolidated title metadata for all titles published in the English- and German-speaking world or can choose to receive data for titles in selected subject areas.
As a bookseller, you would have all of your English and German title data covered by a single feed rather than having to collect it from a range of sources. Not only could this save you considerable time and effort but it would also mean that you have both better and more timely data to pass onto your customers than any of your competitors in the market. Each title is precisely classified according to BIC, thema and NEWBOOKS own in-house classification system and the data is enriched with additional texts from the publisher’s websites, table of contents and book covers etc. We can also deliver the data with Dewey or LCC classifications within MARC 21 records for each title. The service includes both front and backlist titles with constant updating of pricing, availability etc.
There are 2 options in providing your customers with title data from the NEWBOOKS database:
With another raw data supply service, you receive editorially maintained and validated product data for online databases along with all the necessary incremental updates on a daily basis. Hence you benefit from the timely and complete enrichment of the bibliographic metadata as well as the maximum flexibility to further process the metadata seamlessly across various platforms such as your own catalogs, e-commerce website, and other online marketing services or your ERP system.

The reason most frequently cited by partners and customers have elected to migrate from another data provider to BDS is data quality and customer service. Together with BDS, we provide the largest bibliographic catalogue for English-language publications in the international publishing industry.
More than 35 million fully enriched and editorially processed publications include print and e-books, audiobooks, film, music and video games.
Booksellers and information service providers receive data licenses via Newbooks. These depend on whether the catalogue data is used as raw data or in connection with the SaaS solutions "Newbooks.biz eProcurement" or "Approval Plan System".
Our clients receive the data typically as catalogue raw data or integrate it via web service into their own systems, for example into web shops. Unlike in the case of other metadata vendors, no additional fee is charged for using the data in the public domain.
Moreover, we offer the use of BDS' metadata within our SaaS solutions “Approval Plan” and “Newbooks.biz”. These systems are designed in the corporate design of the respective bookseller or service provider; they use the system to serve libraries, companies and institutions of public authorities.
If additional data licenses are available - for example for the Newbooks’ journal database or the catalogue of Libri/Ingram - these can simply be activated. The SaaS solutions are tailored to corporate booksellers and library suppliers with regular customers and are constantly being further developed.
Our teams at Newbooks and BDS all have many years of experience working either in the publishing industry or in the library sector. We understand the requirements of customers very precisely, and strive to meet the expectation of the customer, providing customised solutions wherever possible.
Together with BDS, we do not offer a “take-it-or-leave-it” solution. We strive to provide what customers need.
