Creating Powerful Metadata TOC Presentation
What They’re Saying About The Metadata Handbook
"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."
Product Manager, Identifiers, Bowker
“The Metadata Handbook is an indispensible resource for the Metadata Millennium (aka, now). It 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, it will go a long way to clearing up the “messadata” that creates so much friction in the system and keeps books from being discovered, bought, and used effectively.”

"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.
