NISO Two-Part Webinar, Enabling Discovery, Part One: Publishers and Libraries Talk Metadata & Monographs

For purposes of discovery, the metadata supplied to libraries for e-book content must be complete, explicit and accurate. APIs have been constructed. Best practices have been identified. What are the gaps that still affect the user experience in identifying and navigating to needed content? What might be needed to bridge those gaps? Why are we still wrestling with this issue? This two-part webinar will bring together a cross-section of content providers and libraries to discuss the challenges faced.
