The Singapore Book Publishers Association is pleased to announce the launch of the Singapore BookData Platform. (https://www.bookdata.sg)

Singapore BookData was developed to assist the local book market and improve the flow of information about books published in Singapore. The Platform allows publishers to generate multiple marketing materials, including listing titles using the ONIX file format, the international standard for electronically representing and communicating product information. This tool automates many of the key tasks publishers use to send book information to physical store retailers, booksellers, online e-commerce stores, educational institutions and libraries. The platform also allows users to check prices, availability, bibliographic information and title classifications.
