The NBDB recenly launched three landmark publications that will help put the Philippines in the world map of the book industry.

Launched last January 28 at the Filipinas Heritage Library were the Catalogue of Award-Winning Philippine Titles, Directory of Book Industry Stakeholders, and Train of Thought (poems from Tulaan sa Tren).

The Catalogue of Award-Winning Titles is a comprehensive catalogue that features all the books which won the National Book Award, Gintong Aklat Award, the Madrigal-Gonzales First Book Award, and the PBBY Salanga Children’s Book Award — the most prominent award-giving bodies for books in the country. The Directory of Industry Stakeholders lists NBDB-registered publishers, authors, and other book industry entities.

Finally, Train of Thought (poems from Tulaan sa Tren), is the much-awaited compilation of poems featured in the memorable Tulaan sa Tren project in LRT trains posted inside trains and pre-recorded by celebrities and played over LRT’s PA systems. The NBDB partnered with Fuji Xerox Philippines, which sponsored the printing of Train of Thought.
