You can upload titles in bulk either by using an Onix file or an Excel spread sheet or CSV file. You can download a template for uploading data here:
The template has various sheets that you can fill in to enable an upload to be completed. Please note to allow the use of current linking, the spread sheet is created in XSLX format. You will need to save it back to Microsoft Excel 97 - 2003 to allow upload : see here for general guidelines on uploading data.
If you only wish to upload a few aspects, for example Keywords, you can create your own spread sheet to do this. In column A you should add the ISBN13, then create a column for each data set you wish to upload. (In the example case Keywords). If there are multiple values for each then these should be separated by a semi-colon (See image below).
