ONIX?

I'm with a small publisher (about 20 titles a year) and we have our stuff up on Amazon and we're trying to get into the Kobo store but they asked us whether our meta data is coming via Onix or Excel.

I don't even know what that means. I thought the meta data was embedded with the ePub. I googled it...but I have no idea what those pages are talking about either

Can someone direct me (or tell me) what this means?

What I think they are after is not the metadata in your book; rather for the info that they would place on their website to describe your books.

Take a look at http://www.booknetcanada.ca/index.ph...162&Itemid=468 for what looks to be a good template and more info on Onix, and to help you create the info that is required. This includes
ISBN-10, ISBN-13, Title, Subtitle, Series
