BDS Supply Blackwell’s Library Customers

BDS has signed a deal with Blackwell’s UK to supply profiled MARC records direct to academic libraries.

Blackwell’s UK works with all major academic publishers and supplies books in print and digital formats to academic institutions across the country.

Sarah Armitage, Director of Library Sales at BDS, says, “The quality and accuracy of BDS metadata has been recognised by Blackwell’s as essential to progressing its business with academic libraries.”

The deal follows on from a separate contract completed last year with Blackwell’s for the supply of metadata for the bookseller’s website and shops.

“We are delighted to work with BDS,” says Jenni Lattin, Senior Sales Development Manager at Blackwell’s. “A flexible approach to the delivery of metadata of the highest quality was demonstrated by BDS during discussions and trials. We look forward to further success by working with BDS.”
