BISG Presents Webcast: Best Practices for Book Metadata 

June 4, 2015 | 1:00 p.m. EDT

Register here for this webcast on how you can help increase sales and discoverability for your print or digital titles by using accepted industry practices to denote book metadata for elements like page count, title and subtitle, series designations, formats, editions, age ranges, rights and territory codes, and much more.

The webcast will draw from BISG’s Best Practices for Product Metadata: Guide for North American Senders and Receivers, which will be available in a revised and updated revision later this month. Topics covered in the webcast will include:

  • how key elements of book metadata help increase sales
  • an overview of the revised Best Practices for Product Metadata and a review of key changes in the revision
  • practical tips on the best ways to use the Guide, whether you are on the operations team, a metadata manager, or you’re on the publishing side and help choose or maintain title records
  • the basics of book metadata for those in editorial and other non-technical departments to help you work more effectively with your metadata managers and operations teams
