Persistent Identifiers, MARC records and Cambridge University Press

Within MARC records, two kinds of persistent identifiers always come to mind: ISBNs and URLs.
At Cambridge University Press, we give maximum priority to the accuracy of our metadata, in order to guarantee the best discoverability of our resources.
In this talk, Concetta La Spada, Senior Library Data Analyst, trained Cataloguer and Librarian, will share her tale about the long journey of re-cataloguing our eBooks collections and the importance of correct metadata across systems. An ISBN in the wrong place at the wrong time can be a calamity!
Also, what happens when a URL syntax is changed and everyone needs to be notified?
Come and see Concetta’s (horror?) tale!
