Karen Ferns, PANZ Councillor with the ebook portfolio, is impressed with new release The Metadata Handbook from authors Renee Register and Thad McIlroy.
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 transmission of comprehensive metadata for the books they publish.
The book’s 100 pages take the reader from metadata fundamentals through to the latest information on the use of ONIX 2.1 and 3.0. The glossary simplifies numerous technical terms, while a full listing of vendors and relevant industry organizations provides an annotated directory of resources available to publishers.
The Metadata Handbook is published this month, and available as a PDF (or epub or Mobi file) for immediate download for $95 (USD). The printed version retails for $125.
