Nielsen Book Discovery - Providing comprehensive, enriched and timely bibliographic data


Welcome to the Nielsen Book product website - please note the search box in the top right hand corner is available to search this website, not any of our data services.

Our Nielsen BookData range of information services provide market leading data services to more than 100 countries worldwide. Nielsen Book collects information from over 70 countries (including the UK, Ireland, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, India and South Africa) and works closely with the leading data providers in the US to ensure we have the most consistent and comprehensive global database of title records available.

One of the key factors in our success is the very close working relationship we enjoy with publishers of all sizes, all over the world. With our Nielsen BookData Information service now established as the primary source of product data (used by retailers, Internet sites, libraries and specialist services); publishers who supply us with new product information immediately gain visibility for their books on the international market. The Nielsen database, which now holds more than 25 million title records, is available to booksellers, libraries and publishers worldwide, while our sophisticated search and discovery tools allow these businesses to make informed buying decisions.

Streamlining the supply chain in this way brings many business efficiencies to the market, and leads to cost savings for individual businesses.
