ProQuest OASIS Platform Adds Bowker Books in Print Data

Jul 25, 2019


ProQuest announced the enrichment of its OASIS catalog with bibliographic information from the Bowker Books In Print service. Bowker, a ProQuest affiliate, is the world's leading provider of bibliographic information. With the enrichment of Books in Print metadata, the OASIS database has grown to more than 39 million print titles, 2 million electronic books, and 36,000 streaming videos.

The addition of Bowker’s bibliographic data to OASIS will give librarians higher quality search results, improved linking between formats, and more accurate and consistent data for publication date, author and more. The complete Books In Print service will continue to be offered as a separate subscription for librarians who enjoy its full features – only its metadata has been incorporated into OASIS.

OASIS is a powerful collection development tool for academic libraries to find and buy print and electronic books, streaming video, DVDs, and more.

Benefits of the Books In Print enrichment in OASIS include:

  • The addition of 1.8 million Dewey and Library of Congress classifications
  • 6.7 million new titles
  • 12.7 million new or updated authors
  • Updates to 18 million book titles

With comprehensive information about books and authors, Bowker Books In Print combines the most trusted and authoritative source for bibliographic information with powerful search, discovery and collection development tools designed specifically to streamline the book discovery and acquisition process. Libraries worldwide subscribe to Books In Print to find titles and create lists for collection development.
