METADATA MANAGEMENT AND ONIX

High-Quality Feeds, Tailored to Your Retailers

Share high-quality metadata via ONIX and bespoke feeds tailored to meet the individual requirements of multiple retailers, aggregators and distributors quickly and easily.

Manage Your Own Metadata
With the Biblio suite, you can bring all of your ONIX and metadata needs in house, creating high-quality, rich data feeds, which can be quickly and easily sent out to multiple retailers. Feeds can be completely automated, so you can relax in the knowledge that your metadata is always as up to date as possible and that your authors are benefiting from maximum visibility online.

Managing and validating your metadata is made easy with our ONIX Wizard. This interactive tool quickly pinpoints incomplete data for each recipient, enabling you to enrich all of your title information with ease.

Eliminate the need for expensive third-party aggregators and take advantage of our highly configurable ONIX feed management, which gives you complete control of the information that is fed out to retailers. Each feed can be tailored to suit the requirements and preferences of each recipient.

Support your data with digital content and send eBooks, digital content and images directly to retailers alongside your regular ONIX feeds.

We have gained a week’s worth of staff time in the sending of metadata to our distributors alone, and has allowed us much more flexibility in updating prices, reviews and awards information to both our distributors and our website.
