ONIX: Advanced training course (online)

Overview: This full-day modular course introduces several more advanced aspects of the ONIX standard and associated metadata. It mixes the detail of metadata theory and practice with real-world supply chain effectiveness in an experienced, pragmatic but authoritative way.

Benefits of Attending. Delegates will learn how to optimise their use of ONIX and deal with more complex aspects of metadata.

Course Level:Intermediate/Advanced. This course is suitable for delegates with a good background knowledge of publishing and some experience working with ONIX. It is aimed at staff with management responsibility for product metadata or software developers seeking more in-depth domain knowledge. Delegates should have attended the ONIX: essentials course, or have gained extensive experience of metadata management over several years. To ensure our attendees get the most out of the day, we recommend limiting the number of delegates for this course to 8.

Course Outline: The course content is modular and can be tailored to the particular needs and interests of the delegates. An individual course may contain any (though not all) of the elements below.

  • Identifiers and core semantics: Conceptual modelling, WMI entity stack in and interoperability with library metadata models; identifiers; introduction to ISNI and name identification; GTINs and ISBNs; work IDs; the product lifecycle; linked data and optimisation of web pages.
  • ONIX for all product types Discoverability, keywords and structured subject coding including Thema; sales rights and restrictions; advanced international pricing, tax, discounts; chapter-level metadata; multi-item/multi-component products; validation; block updating; Acknowledgement message.
  • ONIX for e-books Basic differences with print; accessibility; licensing and open access; complex sales rights and restrictions; alternative pricing models (including price constraints, rentals)
  • ONIX 3.0 migration Differences from 2.1, changes and benefits; block updates; migration strategy.
  • New data elements in recent ONIX revisions (3.0.1–3.0.7) Multilingual metadata; licensing; advanced pricing including price constraints; promotional events.
  • Underused features and opportunities; common errors.
  • Summary and further resources
