Good workflow equals good metadata. In an agile publishing environment, good workflow relies on a single source of truth – a repository of information that is added, updated and managed by the people who know most about the products…at the time they know it. When PDLC techniques come to book publishing, the result is product descriptions, tags, and taxonomies that arise organically from agile workflow. Laura Dawson will walk through the publishing process from acquisition to final sale, demonstrating the output of metadata at each stage of the agile process. While many publishers are instituting “metadata czars”, it’s critical to see that everyone in the organization is responsible for the kind of product information that allows readers to find the books they want.
Laura Dawson is Product Manager for Identifiers at Bowker. She never shuts up about identifiers, metadata, and book discovery.
