The Singapore Book Publishers Association (SBPA) (, representing local and international publishing companies based in Singapore, is pleased to announce the launch of the Singapore BookData Platform. (

Singapore BookData was developed to assist the local book market and improve the flow of information about books published in Singapore. The Platform allows publishers to generate multiple marketing materials, including listing titles using the ONIX file format, the international standard for electronically representing and communicating product information. This tool automates many of the key tasks publishers use to send book information to physical store retailers, booksellers, online e-commerce stores, educational institutions and libraries. The Platform allows users to check prices, availability, bibliographic information and title classifications.

Singapore BookData will make more than 200,000 titles published within Singapore more discoverable for local and international readers, supporting books in our four official languages. Subscription is open to publishers, booksellers and libraries. To know more about the rates, please contact the SBPA Secretariat. Members get special rates for the subscription.

Singapore BookData was developed with funding provided by Enterprise Singapore (ESG) and in collaboration with the National Library Board (NLB). The project is supported by the Singapore Book Council (SBC), Copyright Licensing and Administration Society of Singapore Ltd (CLASS) and the ASEAN Book Publishers Association (ABPA)
