Bowker says policy offers publishing community good guidance

Bowker has been an active participant in this process and we hope that the BISG community will continue to fine tune best practices as we move forward in an increasingly complex world of digital publishing.

In its role as the ISBN Agency for the United States and its territories, Bowker, a leading global provider of bibliographic information solutions and services, welcomes the BISG Policy Statement on Best Practices for Identifying Digital Products. “While there are a few areas where the US ISBN Agency would have chosen a slightly different approach, in particular around how Digital Rights Management (DRM) affects digital product identification, we believe this document offers the publishing community good guidance and information on how to identify e-books in the supply chain,” said Beat Barblan, Director of Identifier Services at Bowker.

“We commend the BISG for its relentless efforts to bring all stakeholders to the table and to keep the discussion going until a policy statement acceptable to all parties was hammered out. Bowker has been an active participant in this process and we hope that the BISG community will continue to fine tune best practices as we move forward in an increasingly complex world of digital publishing.”
