Bowker will merge the Books in Print database with its British counterpart, Whitaker's Books in Print, to create the most complete single compilation ever of English-language titles. Encompassing over two million titles, the resulting product - Bowker-Whitaker Global Books In Print Plus - will be published in CD-ROM format and updated on a monthly basis.

Saur publication), Australian Books In Print, and New Zealand Books In Print (both produced by D. W. Thorpe).
