The NISO E-Book Metadata Working Group public comment period has ended. You may access the draft document and view comments received, which are now being considered by the Working Group prior to final publication.
This NISO Working Group will collect the minimal metadata requirements necessary to describe e-books in order to support sales, discovery, delivery, deaccessioning, and preservation, and identify the most effective and efficient way for metadata to be moved through the entire supply chain. This project will help the creators and managers of bibliographic records to cooperate to minimize duplication of work and ensure overall quality of metadata.
