Abstract: As we all know, good MARC records are necessary in order to attain good discoverability. If they are of poor quality, discoverability is seriously compromised and without them, discoverability can be almost impossible. The same goes for KBART lists and XML headers metadata. Usually, metadata within non-library institutions is created automatically through various systems and then distributed to libraries and third parties but at the Cambridge University Press things are done differently. We have worked on improving our metadata in the following ways: 1) Manually enhancing the automated MARC records, using MarcEdit and Bibliofile and making these fully enhanced records available on our platform Cambridge Core 2) Creating KBART lists available to download on our platform 3) Distributing our metadata to library and library services suppliers at the same time 4) Keeping up to date with what international bodies like NISO and IFLA recommends in terms of metadata for publishing 5) Working with library services suppliers on quality control policies in order to make sure that only the best metadata is supplied to the libraries and institutions who use their services At Cambridge University Press, quality control within metadata is fundamental in order to ensure that resources are discovered by users. With this presentation, we will show how our metadata supply chain works, how our policies are applied and what big impact this has had within our company and in they way we collaborate with librarians and library services suppliers.
