On September 12th, Piero Attanasio from AIE presented the progress made in creating a books in print infrastructure in a number of European countries within the Arrow Plus project at the Annual General Meeting of the ISBN International Agency in New York.

The presentation particularly focused on the importance of collaboration between the different players in the book supply chain (publishers, distributors, wholesalers, retailers, libraries and particularly ISBN agencies) to the set up and maintenance of a books in print catalogue. The importance of collaboration with the ISBN International Agency has been also stressed, to receive authoritative data about publishers directly by the PIID, the Publishers ISBN International Directory.
