BDS has signed a deal with global content distributor, Ingram Content Group (“Ingram”), to receive metadata for English language publications.
Ingram metadata can be integrated into BDS’s products and services, improving the scope while maintaining the quality that the UK-based company offers to its clients in the UK and abroad.
“The Ingram catalogue offers high quality metadata with rich extended content covering a very significant portion of US published output,” says Simon Skinner, Business Development Director at BDS, who crafted the deal. “This agreement reflects the global aspiration and vision of BDS and we are proud to have this opportunity to work with such a prestigious and respected company.”
US-based Ingram is a technology company that helps content reach its destination. The company supplies retailers, libraries and academic institutions on a worldwide basis, reflecting today’s global appetite for publications and the metadata needed to work alongside them.
“Both Ingram and BDS can now offer a truly comprehensive view of English language publications in the United Kingdom and the United States,” continues Simon.
“Ingram makes content available throughout the world,” said Margaret Harrison, Director of Digital Services. “And it’s the metadata and our extensive wholesale catalogue that enables publishers to extend that reach around the globe.”
