January 4, 2011 – FiledBy, Inc., which hosts a comprehensive online directory of author listings and websites, has announced a reciprocal author and book metadata sharing agreement with Ingram Content Group Inc.

We found this applicable information on PRWeb in their article, “FiledBy Innovates with Ingram Content Group on Author and Book Information.” With the agreement, FiledBy will stream updated, author-generated book information to the Ingram Content Group to populate title databases. Data is provided globally to over 100,000 online and brick-and-mortar booksellers and libraries.

“Accurate title and author information leads to improved discovery and sales, and now authors can effect their own information online through FiledBy,” said Peter Clifton, Co-Founder and CEO, FiledBy. “By collaborating with Ingram, a leader in the book industry, we are providing traditional and self-published authors with a simple web-based solution to ensure their book and author information is correct, comprehensive and can be integrated into the broadest global book buying audience. Our collaboration is a big win for everyone involved.”

It is encouraging to see new partners in technology. It is important to choose the right partner. Access Innovations is known as a leader in database production, standards development, and creating and applying taxonomies.
