NEWBOOKS Solutions hold second THEMA seminar

With NEWBOOKS, publishers can implement the new standard immediately and without additional effort.

NEWBOOKS Solutions organised the second industry-specific seminar on the new global classification standard THEMA on 20 February 2014 at the Media Campus Frankfurt and introduced the system to a variety of publishers. The 26 participants represented Germany’s renowned academic publishing houses. The German translation of the classification scheme, which has been developed by NEWBOOKS, was presented at the seminar.

There were intensive practical exercises and a lively discussion on the theory part of the seminar. Due to the extensive preparatory work, which NEWBOOKS has done as a permanent member of the THEMA Working Group for Germany-Austria-Switzerland, the new system can be implemented immediately and without organisational effort for the customer. "Our partner publishers in the fields of academic and specialist literature have, so to say, already reached the goal," said the CEO of NEWBOOKS Solutions, Moritz Hodde.

As the seminar was overbooked in advance due to high interest, a third THEMA seminar has been scheduled for June 2014. Registration is still possible for this date. Interested parties from all sectors of the book industry are invited to inform themselves on this important topic in the context of metadata management.

If you wish to ensure precise classification of your frontlist titles and, on request, even the entire backlist titles of your publishing house under the new classification scheme THEMA, look no further than NEWBOOKS Solutions. We look forward to your inquiry.
