Publishers: Another way to upload your books

Since last week, participating in LibraryThing for Publishers has exploded, with 800% more titles and 21 new publishers.

To help more publishers join we’ve added a handy second format for publishers to upload their titles to LibraryThing for Publishers, which skips over the need to have an ISBN-based URL to every book. We used this format to upload from RAND Corporation and Mercer University Press, who would not otherwise have been able to participate.

The format is CSV (Comma-Separated Values) which can be exported by most programs including Excel and Google Docs, and conforms to spreadsheets produced by title-management applications. So long as every row contains both an ISBN—ISBN10 or ISBN13, with separators or not—and a URL, we’ll spot it and make the link. Other columns can be present or absent, as wanted.

The option is available in the “Upload Catalog Titles” section of each publisher or imprint.
