THE BENNETT BLOG

One of the challenges we encountered with the new James Bennett website was how to manage our Book Award pages - particularly with so many industry awards! The number of subcategories of awards also made it a little difficult to work through an appropriate design and navigation path for libraries visiting our site. As such, we thought you would appreciate this helpful guide to viewing our Award Pages.
As many of our customers know, we have a database approaching some 10 million titles. With the growth in ebooks, formats, and Print on Demand (POD) titles (including scanned documents and facsimile editions of varying degrees of quality), we have to continously monitor the incoming bibliographic data feeds, "protection rules" and "exclusions" for our customers. We work on getting the mix right so things like book spinners and other POS materials for retailers are not shown in JBO but sometimes those ISBNs pass right by us no matter how hard we try to implement solid business rules for data. But there's an easy way to identify the right products for your library.
