ONIX 2.1 and ONIX 3.0 Mapping into BNC CataList

Wondering which ONIX fields BNC CataList will be using to populate catalogues?

The sections below provide details on all the ONIX fields CataList can automatically pull in through the BNC BiblioShare data aggregation service. Refer to this guide to check if you are providing the key fields CataList will be looking for, as well as to identify any additional data points you may want to start providing on forthcoming titles.

BNC CataList also allows you to enter a limited amount of basic information for your titles manually into the CataList system. These fields are indicated in the Editable in CataList column. It’s also important to know that any data added or edited manually and locked in CataList means the data you enter will not be updated automatically from BiblioShare.

In addition to your ONIX data, BiblioShare can also store image files for your book covers and interior images.

ONIX 2.1 and ONIX 3.0 support

Many publishers and distributors in Canada are still primarily using ONIX 2.1 to supply data to trade partners including BookNet Canada’s BiblioShare and CataList services. For companies who have begun sending the most up-to-date standard ONIX 3.0 data to BiblioShare, the CataList team will be assessing data quality and will begin contacting accounts to arrange the transition of those accounts over to ONIX 3.0 data in late 2022 and early 2023.

Images & Media

Cover images and interior images can come from BiblioShare, but we've included the option to add some supplemental content manually in CataList. Currently, you can manually add directly in CataList:

  • cover image

  • interior images

  • video embed code

You can also add samples, excerpts, and reading group or teacher's guides through BiblioShare. Information on how to provide those files to BiblioShare is located in our documentation, Supplying Supplemental Content.
