BIC Training Course - Bibliographic metadata and ONIX: practical guidance and best practice

Note: This event has now sold out.

This course is run as a collaboration between Book Industry Communication (BIC) and EDItEUR, and will be delivered by Graham Bell, EDItEUR's Chief Data Architect.

It is a one-day course that introduces the business value of accurate metadata, then provides a thorough and authoritative, ground-up introduction to ONIX for Books, and concludes with a look at best practices and some of the trickier parts of the ONIX message. It covers both ONIX 2.1 and 3.0, and it's relevant to both e-books and physical products.

The course is suitable both for beginners with no pre-existing knowledge of ONIX or XML, and for those with practical experience. It is particularly suitable for publishing staff in editorial, marketing or sales who are responsible for the management and dissemination of product metadata, or for distribution and retail staff struggling to make sense of the metadata that's available. The course is not aimed at software developers (for whom BIC runs a separate, more technical course), but is suitable for those that might be responsible for managing those developers.
