ONIX Essentials Training (Minneapolis)

Overview: this intensive full-day course introduces the ONIX standard and the essentials of producing, managing, and disseminating book metadata. It mixes the background and theory of metadata with real-world practice and guidance in an approachable but authoritative way.

Course Level: Beginner. The course is suitable for beginners with no knowledge of ONIX, although it is also of value to those who are already familiar with ONIX. It is aimed at staff with management responsibility for product metadata, either in editorial, IT, marketing or production within a publisher, or in similar roles within distribution and retailing. It is not highly technical, but software developers seeking to understand ONIX would benefit greatly from this course.

Course Outline: the course content aims to cover ONIX 3.0 in a comprehensive way, though comparisons with version 2.1 are introduced where appropriate.
