BISG | Book Industry Study Group






ONIX (Online INformation EXchange) is the digital and physical book industry standard for communicating (computer-to-computer) all types of metadata. For publishers, ONIX can be the single source of metadata and enhanced metadata that is used by bookstores, library catalogs, search engines as well as publishers' websites.

During this 60-minute webcast, Rebecca Albani (Publisher Relations Manager, RR Bowker) and Tom Richardson (Bibliographic Manager, Booknet Canada) will provide insight into the value of ONIX for sharing your metadata and enhanced metadata and will offer guidance on how to implement the standard for your business in order to foster richer title information for readers to search, browse and buy.

Topic highlights include:

  • What is ONIX?
  • Why should publishers care about ONIX?
  • Who uses ONIX?
  • What formats of ONIX are being used in the marketplace?
  • Why is ONIX important to data receivers, online sites, booksellers, librarians and others?
  • What options are available to publishers for easy implementation of ONIX?
