They answered questions that publishers are likely interested – best practices for using these publishing standards, how BISG and EDItEUR have been supporting publishing industries nationally and internationally, why a migration to ONIX 3.0 is highly suggestive, and how the standards are evolving to keep up to the ever-changing needs of supply chain, rights trade, and the whole industry.
