Publisher catalog administrators may find this new research tool handy when it comes to researching missing metadata for their titles in Edelweiss. It allows you to see exactly what ONIX data our system has ingested for specific ISBNs via your recently processed ONIX files. To give it a try, head to the Catalogs menu on your Edelweiss Administration page and select the Onix Search link:
If your company sends us more than one ONIX feed, confirm which set of ONIX files you want to search through using the Organization selector option. Then select the Start and End Dates for the relevant time frame you want to search for recently processed ONIX files and click the Refresh File List button:
Enter the ISBN you’re looking for, check all of the (processed) ONIX files you want to look in, and click Search. The results will show how many times, if any, that ISBN appeared in your selected ONIX files.
If the ISBN does appear in one or more files, you'll have access to drilling into the raw ONIX files in order to see if specific title attributes were included and, if they were, what the actual values were. Then, if you have further questions on the final processing of this data, our Support team can help you in a much more efficient manner.
