Yet another enhancement, this one aimed at publishers, to LibraryThing was announced by Jeremy on the LibraryThing blog earlier today.
We’ve added the capability for publishers participating in our LibraryThing for Publishers program to transfer their data to LT using the ONIX metadata format, a bibliographic format virtually all publishers produce, and using FTP, the industry standard for ONIX transfer.
For existing LTFP publishers, you can add ONIX feeds to your publisher profile via the “Set up FTP Transfer” option on the Edit profile and settings page. We’ll grab the ONIX file on the schedule you set via FTP and process it.
The blog post also lists several new publishers who have joined the program including:
Yale University Press (UK)
Sourcebooks (and related imprints Cumberland House, Sourcebooks Casablanca, Sourcebooks Fire, Sourcebooks Jabberwocky, Sourcebooks Landmark, Sourcebooks MediaFusion)
Liberty Fund, Inc.
Saqi (and its literary imprint Telegram Books)
Frances Lincoln Publishers and Frances Lincoln Children’s Books
In about nine months more than 140 publishers have joined LT for Publishers.
