Event description

Description

BookNet Canada is offering two courses with EDItEUR's Graham Bell this May for those who want to advance their skills working with metadata and the ONIX standard.

Attendees can register for either or both days. The cost for one day is $200, or $350 for both days (plus tax).


ONIX: Essentials – Monday, May 29, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

This is the first of two intensive, all-day, ONIX training sessions. 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.


ONIX: Advanced Topics – Tuesday, May 30, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

This day builds upon the knowledge of ONIX gained through the Essentials training course, and covers more advanced features of book metadata, identifiers, and ONIX for Books, including its use with ebooks and the latest features of ONIX 3.0. Exact course content is varied according to the interests of the attendees.


Who they're for:

Both courses are aimed at staff with management responsibility for metadata, either in editorial, IT, marketing, or production within a publisher, or in similar roles within distribution and retailing. They are not highly technical, but software developers seeking to understand ONIX would benefit from these courses. The Essentials course is suitable for those with little or no prior knowledge of ONIX, but also benefits those who already have significant experience – it is not merely a ‘beginners' introduction’ and it covers the key ONIX concepts in detail. Attendees for the Advanced Topics course should – as a minimum – have previously attended EDItEUR’s Essentials course or have extensive experience with ONIX, most likely gained over several years.


About the instructor, EDItEUR's Graham Bell:

Graham is Executive Director of EDItEUR, which is responsible for the overall development of EDItEUR’s standards and the management services it provides on behalf of other standards agencies (including the International ISBN, IDF and ISNI agencies).

He joined EDItEUR as its Chief Data Architect in 2010, focussed on the continuing development and application of ONIX for Books, and on other EDItEUR standards for both the book and serials sectors. He has over a decade of experience with ONIX for Books, was responsible for EDItEUR’s work on Thema, and delivers regular technical training and conference sessions on ONIX and EDItEUR’s other standards.

Graham previously worked for HarperCollins Publishers in the UK, where he was Head of Publishing Systems. He led the development of bibliographic and digital asset management systems, and was involved with the launches of many HarperCollins digital initiatives including e-audio, ebooks, and print-on-demand programmes. Prior to HarperCollins, he worked as an editor and in IT roles within the magazine industry with Redwood Publishing and BBC Magazines.
