Registration is closed

The third of three sessions on accessible ebook QA and metadata, co-hosted by eBOUND Canada and the LPG.

In this free session, we'll discuss ebook accessibility metadata, including the data inside your ebooks and the data you create for your ONIX files. We'll go over the basics of what it is, what it means, and what it does. Then, we'll walk through how to create accessibility metadata that will be informative, true, and useful, and we'll talk about how to make sure it conforms to the standards set out by Benetech and other organizations.

About our presenter:

Amanda Lee has worked in Canadian publishing for over 10 years.

Those projects include managing metadata workflows for Canadian publishers, training publishers in enhanced metadata and digital distribution, researching the state of accessible book publishing, researching the effects of specific pieces of metadata on sales of books, and more.
