New Release Service
The New Release Service (ND) is based on the publishers' reports to the Verzeichnis Lieferbarer Bücher (German Books in Print, VLB) and is offered by the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek (German National Library) as an information service for advance announcements and newly-released titles. All titles that are reported to the VLB are automatically passed on from the MVB Marketing- und Verlagsservice des Buchhandels GmbH to the German National Library. In the German National Library the titles are structured according to the Deutsche Nationalbibliografie, which is based on the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) and lists them weekly in the New Release Service.
The New Release Service replaces the Serie N advance announcements for monographs and periodicals (CIP), which have ceased publication with issue 51, 2002. It is not part of the Deutsche Nationalbibliografie.
The German National Library provides the New Release Service as a free online journal in PDF format in the publicly accessible catalogue, via the Data Shop and via the Data Service (provision is charged).Notes for the reporting procedure, information for publishers Structuring of the Deutsche Nationalbibliografie and the New Release Service
