Understanding BIC Subject Classification & an Introduction to Thema Training Course

This course describes the structure and purpose of the BIC subject classification scheme, explaining how the BIC codes are used and interpreted throughout the supply chain, including their role in enabling effective search and discovery online. It also provides practical guidance in how BIC codes should be best assigned.

The course will also provide an introduction to Thema, the new international classification scheme for the global book trade – explaining the need for such a scheme, its benefits, and the key differences between BIC and Thema. Again, some practical guidance on assigning codes to book records is included.

This course is aimed at anyone with an interest in book product data quality in general, and subject classification in particular. Whatever your background, whether from an Editorial, Marketing or Systems perspective, this course is relevant to individuals from all professional disciplines within the trade. Some knowledge and experience of the BIC scheme is very useful (and assumed) but not essential.

The course trainer will Howard Willows of EDItEUR Member Nielsen Book.
