In this three-session course, Graham Bell introduces the ONIX standard and the essentials of producing, managing, and disseminating book metadata. This course gives you all the vital information to understand the basics of ONIX and how it's used in the book industry. It mixes the background and theory of metadata with real-world practice and guidance in an approachable but authoritative way. This year, the course has been extended with the addition of more information on metadata for digital products.

This course is suitable for beginners with no knowledge of ONIX, but 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 publishing house, 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.

This training spans 13.5 hours over three days:

  • Tuesday, March 7 from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. PT
  • Wednesday, March 8 from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. PT
  • Thursday, March 9 from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. PT

You must be in Canada and have a Canadian mailing address to attend.
