BDS offers metadata, web and graphic design services.

BDSData aggregates, curates and delivers industry-standard metadata on books and home entertainment releases; BDSDigital  delivers websites to publishers and the book trade with associated graphic design services.

BDSData metadata addresses print and e-books, audio books, computer games, film and music across physical and streaming and downloadable digital media. It adheres to all industry standards and classification models and includes a wide range of extended content. BDSData delivers metadata to the library sector, industry bodies, charities and the book trade.

BDSDigital  offers comprehensive web development, hosting and maintenance services and an award-winning design division working in both digital and print. BDSDigital specialises in the integration of large data sets, such as those generated by the UK's publishing output, into an online environment that enables product management and presentation.

BDSData and BDSDigital combined build a service that reflects our company's commitment to offer "information beautifully presented" - the complete service, allowing content to be viewed, used and purchased through robustly built websites that stand out from the crowd.

Today, ongoing research, innovation and participation in industry bodies around developing metadata standards and the latest web technologies, allied to an insistence on quality, means that BDS holds a place at the forefront of metadata curation, presentation and use.
