Schema.org Working Group
Share |

The Schema.org working group identifies relationships between key ONIX elements and Schema.org, the working standard for how content is structured on the web. The work is expected to provide enhanced discoverability of books in web browsers. The working group is also creating an ONIX to Schema.org mapping to facilitate the ability to repurpose ONIX metadata. The working group is chaired by Graham Bell of EDItEUR. 

Working Group Goals

  • Produce a map linking industry-standard ONIX metadata and schema.org markup, so that publishers and retailers can more easily use schema.org to support product discovery

  • Deliver a webinar and tutorial to demonstrate the value of the schema.org map and show how it can help avoid the need to manage schema.org metadata separately from existing metadata


    Why work on Schema.org?

    Adherence to the requirements of schema.org can improve search rankings and online discovery. Publishers and retailers, as well as authors and libraries, can use the ONIX to schema.org map to drive higher rankings in online searches.

    What can you expect from our work? 

    • A map of ONIX to schema.org

    • A tutorial and webinar illustrating its use and value

    • Documentation of the tutorial and mapping to schema.org
