The Library of Congress is going to be rolling out a series of posts every few weeks to describe, more in depth, some of the new features that you’ll see in PrePub Book Link.

PrePub Book Link has a completely modernized user experience and brings together the CIP and PCN Programs into one consolidated system. The entire look and feel of PPBL has been streamlined to be both user-friendly and more attractive. PPBL improves the functionality of the CIP and PCN applications while preserving the mission, which is to provide quality prepublication data to publishers.

As we get closer to our spring launch date, we’ll be adding more content that describes some of the key features and upgrades that publishers will experience. To whet your appetite a little, here are some of the topics we’ll be covering in future posts:

  • Self-service password resets
  • Enhanced ONIX integration for CIP
  • Updated galley and title page attachments
  • Individual accounts that can be linked to multiple publishers

Stay tuned…
