NISO Two-Part March Webinar: Understanding Critical Elements of E-books:
Standards for Formatting and Metadata

Each part is independent; you can register for either one or both. Get a 25%
discount if you register for both parts.

============================================================================
=====
PART 1: EPUB3: Putting Electronic Books into a Package
DATE: March 14, 2012
TIME: 1:00pm - 2:30pm Eastern

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

A critical element of the e-book marketplace is a common file structure that
is agreed upon between content creators and the supply chain, and works with
multiple reader technologies. The newly released EPUB 3 specification offers
a number of major innovations over the previous version, including support
for rich media, interactivity, global language support), and styling and
layout enhancements. EPUB 3 is also tightly integrated to web standards.
This includes HTML 5, which is still in draft. Yet HTML5 is already in use
for app development on the iPad and other mobile devices. This webinar will
provide a discussion of both of these standards and their use for creating
rich, cross-platform e-books.

TOPICS AND SPEAKERS

• EPUB 3 Overview, Evolution, and Benefits – Bill Kasdorf, Vice
President, Apex Content Solutions; Metadata Subgroup Lead, IDPF EPUB 3
Working Group

• Adding Interactivity to E-books with HTML5 – Sanders Kleinfeld, Publishing
Technologies Specialist, O'Reilly Media

============================================================================
====
PART 2: Find That E-book - or Not: How Metadata Matters
DATE: March 21, 2012
TIME: 1:00pm - 2:30pm Eastern

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

2011 will likely be seen as the tipping point year for e-books. With more
and more publications being issued in electronic format, how do users find
what is available? How are identifiers such as the International Standard
Book Number (ISBN) and the new International Standard Text Code (ISTC) being
applied to e-books and used in the supply chain? What metadata is crucial
for making e-books discoverable? Without quality metadata, e-books will be
invisible online. This webinar will discuss the key standards in the
metadata supply chain and describe what can be done to ensure the discovery
and delivery of the titles users will want to buy and read.

TOPICS AND SPEAKERS

• Metadata: Without You I'm Nothing (Metadata Quality and its Importance in
E-Book Discovery) – Laura Dawson, Communications Chief, Firebrand
Technologies

• ISTC, ISBN, and E-book Assignment – Pat Payton, Senior Director, Publisher
Relations and Content Development, Bowker

• ONIX for E-books – Graham Bell, Chief Data Architect at EDItEUR
