For publishers, Canadian authorship identifiers present a valuable marketing tool. They offer another useful way to help librarians, booksellers, and dedicated bestseller lists to bring those books and their prospective audience together. These identifiers also add another lens through which SalesData and LibraryData can be dissected for trends and opportunities. Those Canadian bestseller lists you see in the newspaper? Canadian titles are identified using the Canadian contributor marker that we'll discuss more below.
