EDItEUR announces the 41st International Supply Chain Seminar, to be held on Tuesday 15 October 2019 at Haus des Buches, Braubachstraße 16, Frankfurt am Main 60311, Germany.

This is EDItEUR’s annual mini-conference dedicated to metadata, identifier and content standards for book and e-book publishing – it’s the essential pre-Frankfurt event for publishers, distributors, booksellers and service providers keen to boost the effectiveness of their business.

Speakers include:

  • Susan Breeuwsma of CB (slides) (the main Dutch book distributor) speaking on the introduction of the Thema subject category scheme in the Netherlands (slides in Japanese, and Japanese notes)
  • Fride Fosseng and Bente Franck-Saetervoll of Bokbasen (slides) on the ALLVIT scheme to provide academic e-books in Norway, which relied on metadata making sophisticated use of ONIX
  • Andrew Joseph of Witz University (slides) in South Africa on a project to increase market awareness and discoverability of academic publications from Southern Africa, and the building of a database of ONIX metadata for those books
  • Simon Pallant of Gardners Books (slides) in the UK (a wholesaler) on a practical guide to the digital audio supply chain
  • Luc Audrain of Hachette Livre (slides) in Paris on developments with EPUB 3 and the W3C
  • Alain Fournier of BTLF on how ONIX has influenced BTLF’s application architecture 
  • an interview with a group of system vendors on how their systems are integrated into the wider ecosystem of publishing software, chaired by Graham Bell of EDItEUR
  • there will also be an update on EDItEUR's activities (slides) and a chance to question EDItEUR staff on current developments in ONIX, Thema and ISNI.

The speaker programme will be followed at 17:30 by a reception to celebrate 20 Years since the initial release of ONIX.
