Macmillan signs deal with NetRead

From the press release:

NetRead Software and Services, LLC announced a metadata partnership today with Macmillan USA. Under terms of the agreement, NetRead will handle their title data conversion and distribution through its product, JacketCaster. JacketCaster is architected around the book industry XML-standard called ONIX, and this foundation will allow for quick and efficient delivery of Macmillan’s eBook and Print title information to its myriad of trading partners....

NetRead has been an integral part of the publishing process since 2000 when they launched their ONIX-conversion application, JacketCaster, at Book Expo America. The internationally-recognized ONIX standard allows publishers to quickly list titles and effect changes with booksellers and industry players such as, Barnes & Noble, Ingram, Baker & Taylor, and Bowker. The standard is represented in the United States by the Book Industry Study Group (BISG), of which NetRead and Macmillan are members.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
