ISBN: This is where you will add all of the product numbers that define your product(s). There will be more than one tab in this screen if you have different formats for the same product (Go to the Forms Tab for more information).
Fill in the following fields:
Is this title: Tick on the relevant options below -
- Visible on the Web – This ensures the data will appear on your website if your Stison Title Management system feeds to it.
- Archived/ Deleted – You will need to use this when a title has already been submitted to the bibliographic agencies and then subsequently cancelled before publication date. Sending a title through to the agencies with this item ticked will ensure that they remove the title from their databases. These titles are thus not deleted from your system entirely; they are moved into an archived area. You can read more here about archived titles by scrolling down the page.
- ONIX Distribution – This ensures the data will be included when ONIX feeds are generated from the system (manually or on a schedule).
