Canadian publishers

Had a great meeting with the BookNet Canada people (http://www.booknetcanada.com – has lots of helpful stuff for those wishing to step up to the Onix plate) here in Toronto. Was interesting that for publishers there seems to be much more impetus to become Onix compared to the UK. In particular, quite a lot of publishers receive of degree of government/arts council support and it seems continuing support is dependent on Onix compliance. In addition, the largest bibliographic data receiver here is Indigo and it seems they are going to penalise those who don’t or can’t comply.

So, to try and help out we have added to the Anko Title Manager (http://anko.ie for free download) a built in importer for the BookNet Canada/Indigo standard spreadsheet. As well as validation for their Onix requirements – all for $240.
