Wednesday, January 9, Part One: Vendor Perspectives, 1:00 pm


Confirmed Speakers: Michael Roberts, Content Discovery Manager, Emerald Publishing; Jon Elwell, Senior Product Manager, Collection Development and Content Strategy, EBSCO Publishing; Susan Doerr, Assistant Director, Digital Publishing and Operations Manager, University of Minnesota Press


Here’s what those speakers will be addressing:


The Pathways for Monograph Metadata at a University Press


Many university presses rely on distribution partners and other intermediary service providers to deliver and enhance monograph metadata for use in library discovery systems, including creating MARC records for monographs. This can lead to gaps in a press’s  knowledge about how our metadata is enhanced for a library’s system. Some presses create descriptive metadata that could be valuable to libraries and our retailer partners, but have no mechanism for delivering that metadata to libraries. This talk is a look inside the University of Minnesota Press and our metadata creation and delivery process. In the past year our team have worked with librarians at the University of Minnesota Library to check our assumptions, better understand metadata delivery systems, and improve our knowledge.


Data-driven discovery to delivery: A publisher's perspective


What are the problems facing users when finding and using ebook content? This talk will outline how Emerald are working to spot and fix issues affecting the whole Discovery-to-Delivery pathway, including some case studies illustrating where things can go wrong and how we've identified and fixed them.


Aggregators and Metadata: What is their Role?


EBSCO eBooks partners with over 1,300 contract publishers and more than 4,000 imprints to host over 1.4 million eBooks and audiobooks. Each one of those ebooks/audiobooks comes with hundreds of data points associated. Today I am going to talk about how we handle this deluge of data by standardizing, prioritizing and enhancing it so it can be utilized to drive title discovery at both points of use and purchase.


Part Two of this two-part webinar, scheduled for Wednesday, January 16, features participants discussing the issue from the perspective of the library.
