MVB and Newbooks Solutions to accelerate the Metadata database

On the long road to set up a metadatabase as industry-specific solution to oppose Amazon’s sophisticated and market-leading book catalogue, the MVB as the operating company of the German central book catalogue VlB Verzeichnisses lieferbarer Bücher has been a specialist partner.

The Cologne-based agency NEWBOOKS Services indexes and classifies contents mainly for academic publishers. The MVB has recently entered into a strategic partnership with the newly founded company NEWBOOKS Solutions with the defined goal of “providing a significantly improved metadatabase" to the book industry.
