Join Joshua Tallent for an in-depth discussion in this video Final thoughts and where to go next, part of Learning Metadata for Book Publishing.
- [Instructor] I'd like to talk next…about some final thoughts and give you…some advice about where you can go next .…The number of published books by traditional publishers…between 2002 and 2013 didn't really change very much.…However, the number of total books published…in that period, including those for nontraditional…publishers and self-published authors jumped dramatically.…Most people talk about the changes that have come…as a result of the growth of e-books,…but technological changes in publishing…have been happening for much longer than that.…All of the automated metadata sending and receiving…we've been talking about in this training…is the result of these technological changes.…
