2014 Metadata Standards for Books, Journals, and Digital Publications
Congratulations, you finally understand ONIX! Now comes the hard part. Rapidly changing metadata standards are raising new questions and forcing publishers to rethink answers to old ones. How do we uniquely identify an author? A series of books, a single book, or a chapter within a book? A journal article? Can the same standards apply to libraries, wholesalers, retailers, and aggregators? Which standards are "safe" to use and which are still evolving? Join a panel of experts to explore the answers.
