DIY Metadata (When You Want to Control Your Own Destiny/Don’t Want to Pay a Service)
Saturday, June 20 — 1:45-3:00 pm
Facilitator: Rachael Levay, Marketing and Sales Director, University of Washington Press
A pay service makes it easier to supply ONIX but also hinders your ability to build and tailor your data to expand what you do (and with whom). The nuts and bolts of DIY Metadata raise a lot of questions about interacting with vendors (especially with ONIX 3.0 on the horizon), how/when to make updates on prices/discounts/other core metadata, how to give each vendor what they need how they need it, and how to meld e-metadata with p-metadata (especially when using e-vendors like CoreSource, Bibliovault, etc.). We'll problem solve by sharing what we're doing, how we're doing it, and by looking for ways to streamline ONIX systems while still meeting high standards and verifications.
Collaborators: staff currently creating, updating, and sending ONIX metadata through in-house operations (or those who are invested in doing so) and who are primary point-persons in vendor relationship management. Target presses are Groups 2 and 3. We need at least five contributors to make the conversation move!
