Nielsen Book supports Libraries Week

Nielsen Book has been at the heart of the book industry for more than 100 years and we work with libraries all over the world. We are delighted to sponsor Libraries Week for the fourth year running and show our support to this vital sector.

Nielsen Book is once again delighted to be supporting this year’s Libraries Week, celebrating the nation’s much-loved libraries and your central role in supporting active and engaged communities.

We offer a unique range of services for libraries, from search and selection solutions to providing MARC records for cataloguing and enriched data for your catalogue. We provide our library clients with a consistent and reliable source of up to date, harmonised and enriched English-language book metadata.

We are therefore perfectly placed to help libraries to support your communities. Some of the ways we can help you do this are:

  • Supplying data to support your Click and Collect services.
  • Increasing the breadth of your title coverage to fulfil the needs of your whole community.
  • Providing ‘look inside’ content for over 74.5k titles across your social media platforms.
