Overview

The Metadata Handbook is a one-stop guide for professional publishers, large and small, who need to get a handle on how metadata for books operates in the real world, and who need to implement a strategy to master the development and distribution of comprehensive metadata for the books they publish.

Its over 100 pages take the reader from metadata fundamentals through to the latest information on the use of ONIX 2.1 and 3.0. A comprehensive glossary simplifies numerous technical terms while a full listing of vendors and relevant industry organizations provides an annotated directory of resources available to publishers, including self-publishers.

This is the only published guide that shows publishers -- including self-publishers -- how to create metadata that makes their books discoverable online.

Editorial Reviews

The Columbia Guide to Digital Publishing - Bill Kasdorf
“The Metadata Handbook has everything you need to know about metadata—and you DO need to know it! Best of all, it demystifies metadata, providing context and clarity for everything from the metadata ecosystem (who the players are, how metadata is created and used) to the standards that make it work. Full of intelligent, practical recommendations and concrete examples...”
Author, BISG Metadata Study - Brian O'Leary
“What do we want? Good metadata! When do we need it? Now! But how do publishers make that happen? Start with The Metadata Handbook, which offers a practical set of explanations and recommendations that will improve the way that metadata is created and maintained. We know that good metadata helps sell books; this 'Handbook' tells you how to make good metadata a regular practice.”
Bowker - Laura Dawson
“The Metadata Handbook is a thorough consideration of where we are with regard to book metadata and discovery, and where we need to go. Register and McIlroy have compiled an excellent resource, filled with history, definitions, and loads of all-important context, complete with interviews of people who've been actively involved in the metadata landscape for a long time. It's essential documentation for publishing today. I really love it.”
