BENEFITS & CHALLENGES
A Special Program for Book Industry Executives
PROGRAMProduct metadata is the connective tissue of the book industry, binding publishers and authors to data aggregators, retailers, and others. But information about the products we sell is only valuable when it's accurate, timely, complete, and updated -- and too often, that's not the case. BISG's new research report, Development, Use, and Modification of Book Product Metadata, provides the foundation for a meaningful dialogue among and between key industry stakeholders on how to improve product metadata.
In an intimate, exclusive setting -- limited to 25 attendees, director-level and above -- Brian O'Leary (Magellan Media Consulting) presented the results of the research report. Publisher and retailer representatives then engaged in a conversation about how industry partners could work together to ensure quality product metadata. All presenters took part in a room-wide discussion among all attendees on opportunities and challenges presented by improving product metadata.
