OA Book Metadata Standards to Support Usage Data Analytics
This session will explore how current or new standards could address the challenges facing analytics that rely on the OA book usage data supply chain. Laura Ricci of Clarke & Esposito, co-author of the OA Book Supply Chain report produced with support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for the global Exploring Open Access eBook Usage (OAeBU) data trust pilot project, will review the gaps and opportunities presented by the diversity of OA book stakeholders, open-access specific metadata elements and metadata standards. Lorraine Estelle, Director of Project COUNTER, and Brian O’Leary, Executive Director of the Book Industry Study Group, will then discuss how COUNTER and ONIX are positioned to address such issues in current or future releases. The session will conclude with all panelists reflecting upon where additional standards development may be needed.
