YPG Digital: BISAC Coding, Metadata, and Epub 3

Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

As publishing grows more digitally and web-focused, we at YPG believe it’s our mission to equip our members with the skills and knowledge to be frontrunners and innovators in this industry. With that in mind, we are launching YPG Digital: a series of programs geared toward social media, the web, e-books, and many other rapidly changing sectors of the business.

Our first YPG Digital session on BISAC Coding, Metadata, and EPUB 3 (or, how to make it easier for readers to discover your books) will take place at the AAP offices (71 Fifth Avenue, 2nd floor) on Tuesday, March 19th from 6:30-8:00pm. Angela Bole, the Book Industry Study Group (BISG)’s Deputy Executive Director, will discuss the importance of industry standards for the tech-y side of the book supply chain. Focus will be placed on three main areas of concern for anyone making and selling books today. BISAC Subject Headings, or the way a book is classified online by genre, and BISAC coding can be manipulated to strategically improve your books’ rankings. Metadata, when composed and input into your title management system thoughtfully, will sell more books. EPUB 3 is the new standard eBook format — find out how it improves your titles. Through a combination of presentation and audience Q&A, Angela will define the three standards, show why they matter, and talk about how the industry could make them better.
