The Book Industry Study Group Wants to Hear from You!

February 15, 2011

The BISAC subject codes are the industry standard genre-specific categories that you include on the back cover of your book so retailers online and offline know how to categorize and shelve your title—for example “Juvenile Fiction,” “Biography,” etc. A complete list of those categories can be found here .

BISG is looking for input to help inform the activities of their BISAC Subject Codes Committee in 2011 and beyond. Please take a moment to fill out a brief, eight-question survey about subject areas in which you feel the Committee should focus. If you’re not the person within your company that works with the BISAC Subject Codes, please feel free to pass the survey link on to any of your colleagues that do.

The Subject Codes Survey will close on February 16, 2011, end of day. Please help by taking the survey here:
