In July 2017 Metabooks Brasil starts live operation for publishers, distributors and bookshops
Metabooks is the metadata database for the Brazilian book market. After only eight months of development and a planned testing and customization phase of another two months, the Portuguese-language version of the German Books in Print – Verzeichnis Lieferbarer Bücher (VLB) – has gone live in July 2017.
Starting with more than 6,000 available titles, the system’s volume will gradually be expanded by data imports. A total of 39 publishers have already signed contracts for using the German technology export. Further deals are due shortly, resulting in a volume of more than 70,000 titles soon.
