DCL Teams With Bowker to Support Self-Publishers

Digital publishing services provider Data Conversion Laboratory (DCL) announced a partnership with bibliographic information provider Bowker to better serve the self-publishing market. Bowker Identifier Services will now offer self-publishers DCL’s EPUB on Demand eBook Product Service through Bowker’s website.

“As the U.S. and Australian ISBN agencies, we’re often the first stop for self-publishers. Since ebooks are increasingly a ‘must-have’ for our customers, we know providing them instant access to a quality conversion service streamlines the publishing process,” said Beat Barblan, director of Bowker Identifier Services. “Bowker has been a trusted partner to publishers for more than 140 years. We searched for a reliable service that would enable our customers to retain ownership of their content and consistently produce an accurate, highly useable ebook. We’re pleased to be working with DCL.”

A study by Bowker Market Research shows dramatic growth of the self-publishing market. The number of self-published books produced annually in the U.S. has nearly tripled, growing 287% since 2006, tallying more than 235,000 print and etitles as of the end of 2011. While print accounts for 63% of self-published books, ebooks are gaining fast. Ebook production in 2011 was 87,201, up 129% over 2010. In contrast, print grew 33% in the same period.

DCL’s EPUB on Demand is an online submission portal that allows authors, publishers, and other users to benefit from the same powerful resources dedicated to larger clients and organizations while streamlining the process. It’s quick, accurate, cost-effective, and supports all popular e-reader devices.

Bowker, a ProQuest affiliate, is the official ISBN Agency for the U.S. and its territories.
