Above the Treeline: Books at BookExpo

From their press release, an interesting and useful application from Above the Treeline. At Bowker, we tried this idea with Books In Print:
Above the Treeline, a leading provider of business intelligence tools to the publishing industry, is pleased to announce that the on-line product catalog for BookExpo America 2010, called "Books@BEA" has now gone live and is available for attendees and other interested book professionals to use.

The catalog currently has over 300 exhibitors participating and contains over 10,000 titles being featured at this year's show. The catalog can be found at .

A mobile version for iPhone, Android, and Blackberry will be available in the next few days. Check the Books@BEA site for news on the mobile version and its availability.

Books@BEA uses Edelweiss, the internet-based digital catalog service from Above the Treeline, as its foundation to provide users with the ability to search and browse titles by keyword, exhibitor, genre, format, pubdate, and event. Users who are registered with Edelweiss (a free and easy process) can also add tags and notes that will be stored for future reference. Exhibitors and browsers can email, tweet, and share titles on Facebook as well.

"It's all about bringing people and books together," says John Rubin, CEO & Founder of Above the Treeline, "It's why our customers use Edelweiss and it's why we all come to BEA. Books@BEA will make it easier for everyone to keep on top of the hot titles and to find the undiscovered gems."
