Purpose of the Course
Recent research shows that good metadata leads to increased sales*. With that in mind, this advanced course mixes the theoretical discussion of metadata with practical examples and guidance, and links metadata very clearly with supply chain effectiveness and commercial success. 

* Nielsen White Paper: The Link Between Metadata and Sales

Benefits of Attending
Experienced ONIX users will learn how to optimise their metadata and deal with the more complex aspects of ONIX by attending this course. 

Course Level 
This course (provided as an online course in two, half-day training sessions) is aimed at experienced ONIX users with a good background in ONIX 2.1 and/or 3.0. Delegates should previously have attended the BIC ONIX: Essentials training course or have extensive experience with ONIX, gained over several years. Attendees do not require a technical background — the course is suitable for both publishing staff and software developers seeking domain knowledge. 

Course Outline
The content of this course is modular and will be tailored to the particular interests of delegates; consequently, each course will be different. However, the overall content will be as follows:

  • Identifiers and Core Semantics
  • ONIX for eBooks
  • ONIX 2.1 to ONIX 3.0 Migration
  • Recent Additions in ONIX 3.0.1, 3.0.2, 3.0.3, etc.
  • Question and Answer Session
  • Practical Demos (spread throughout the day)
