1 © OverDrive, Inc. 2007Version Spring March, 2007 Publishers: Metadata Update & Working in the NIMAC Portal

2 © OverDrive, Inc. 2007Version Spring What Will We Cover Today? Metadata: News/Updates Submitting Batch Files to OverDrive Working with Files in the Publisher Portal Working with Publisher Subaccounts

3 © OverDrive, Inc. 2007Version Spring Spring, 2007 Metadata News/Updates

4 © OverDrive, Inc. 2007Version Spring Metadata Review In the NIMAS file, metadata include information about the source print book, such as the title, author, publisher, series. NIMAS files include metadata in the OPF. Batch submissions must also include metadata in an Excel spreadsheet for loading into the OverDrive system.

5 © OverDrive, Inc. 2007Version Spring Why is this information so important? 1. The information you provide is what users will search. The completeness and accuracy of this information directly affect how effectively users of the NIMAC can find the files they need. 2. The information in the OPF and spreadsheets is used by NIMAC staff to provide quality control in the database. 3. Verification of metadata is the second step in the certification process.

6 © OverDrive, Inc. 2007Version Spring For additional information... Please sign up for our webcast training, Publishers and Metadata: Working with the OPF and the OverDrive Metadata Spreadsheet. Or, view and listen to the archived webcast at this link: Download the updated metadata document from our web site:

7 © OverDrive, Inc. 2007Version Spring Metadata Update #1: PDFs Because the NIMAC does not have access to the print books, staff relies on the PDF to verify title, copyright and ISBN information. NIMAC requires that publishers submit in the NIMAS file a PDF from the bookwherever these pieces of information are found. Usually this will be the title page and page following the title page.

8 © OverDrive, Inc. 2007Version Spring Metadata Update #2: UPC Codes and Identifiers The NIMAS specification requires that the Identifier for a file set be based on the ISBN. However, if a title has no ISBN but does have a UPC code, this code may be used as the basis for the Identifier. Please use this format: UPC NIMAS

9 © OverDrive, Inc. 2007Version Spring Metadata Update #2: UPC Codes and Identifiers Do not use UPC codes in the Source ISBN field. If you have an item that has neither an ISBN or UPC code, contact NIMAC. Please inform NIMAC if you are preparing files for materials that are not standard textbooks or ancillary materials. NIMAC is working with OverDrive to develop necessary metadata for serialsthis was not material that was planned for based on discussions during the development phase.

10 © OverDrive, Inc. 2007Version Spring Metadata Update #3: Series and Reading Programs This information is commonly used for searching, but is often not found on the title page of the book. NIMAC relies on publishers to provide this information. The Series field was recently modified so that up to two Series can be submitted in the Excel sheet. Please use two separate elements in the OPF if you wish to include a second series statement.

11 © OverDrive, Inc. 2007Version Spring Metadata Update #3: Series and Reading Programs Use of the Reading Program field should be restricted to comprehensive language arts programs, or to schemes established by an outside organization, such as Accelerated Reader. Other collective titles assigned by a publisher for a group of textbooks and ancillary materials (e.g., Scott Foresman Social Studies) should go in the Series field.

12 © OverDrive, Inc. 2007Version Spring Metadata Update #4: Teachers Editions Based on IDEA and with the guidance of OSEP, NIMAC does not accept teachers editions of textbooks. However, teaching materials that include pages to be distributed directly to students may be accepted if publishers submit them to the NIMAC.

13 © OverDrive, Inc. 2007Version Spring Metadata Update #5: Partial Files The standard policy of the NIMAC is that we do not accept incomplete files. However, in certain specific casesas with pages from a teachers guidewe will make an exception. In these cases, a Publisher Note explaining what is included in the file will be required. Please contact NIMAC to give advance notice if you are planning to submit partial files.

14 © OverDrive, Inc. 2007Version Spring Spring, 2007 Submitting Batch Files to OverDrive

15 © OverDrive, Inc. 2007Version Spring Batch Processing: FTP Schedule Schedule: As of March 5, 2007, OverDrive is processing batches bi-weekly, according to this schedule: Files submitted by noon on Friday will appear by end of business day Tuesday in the portal. Files submitted by noon on Tuesday will appear by end of business day Thursday in the portal.

16 © OverDrive, Inc. 2007Version Spring Batch Processing: FTP Schedule Please be aware that the above schedule assumes that files validate and include all required metadata. Files will not be loaded by OverDrive if required metadata fields are not included in the spreadsheet and the publisher will be notified of the need to complete and re- submit the metadata.

17 © OverDrive, Inc. 2007Version Spring Batch Processing: Notifying OverDrive Please notify OverDrive every time a batch is ready for them on the FTP site by ing: This address can also be used to request FTP access if your organization does not yet have a folder on their server.

18 © OverDrive, Inc. 2007Version Spring Batch Processing: Replacement Files In general, when you submit batch files, you must include the Excel spreadsheet with the metadata. New files will not be loaded by OverDrive without an accompanying sheet. However, if you are sending a replacement file (for example, if an OPF had errors or omissions and you are resubmitting the NIMAS file zip file with revised OPF), it is not necessary to submit an Excel sheet. You can make any needed edits directly in the portal. Be sure to advise OverDrive so that they know when a file is a replacement and this is the reason that no sheet is included.

19 © OverDrive, Inc. 2007Version Spring Batch Processing: For More Information … OverDrive has created a PowerPoint for publishers explaining the file submission process. We strongly recommend that anyone who will be submitting files review this material. It is found on the Support tab in the publisher portal. The OverDrive metadata Excel spreadsheet can be also found at the Support tab. It includes the complete listings for all fields that use controlled vocabulary lists, as well as instructions on how to fill out the spreadsheet.
