ATN Title Record meta-data requirements with ONIX equivalences

Title The entire title of the book including leading article and sub-title, but not including the edition number.

"Tortora, Gerard J.; Funke, Berdell R.; Case, Christine L.", "Tortora, Funke, Case" <Contributor> composite where <SequenceNumber> or <b034> would contain order and <PersonNameInverted> or <b037> would contain author with last name first
Edition The edition number as a whole number. If this field is empty it will be assumed this is the first (1) edition 1,2,3,... <EditionNumber> or <b057>
Copyright The original copyright year, as 4 digits only 1986, 1994, 2003, 2009... <CopyrightYear> or <b087>
Publication Date The original publication date as month (2 digits) "/" year (4 digits). This field is useful when giving advance notice of a books publication (see 'Notification Type' field), as it can indicate that an electronic file may not be available until after the publication date 02/2008, 08/2008, 11/2010... <PublicationDate> or <b003>
Related Title(s) The purpose of this field is to provide information about other titles that are related to this title. This information can be helpful when a publisher would like direct the person making a request for an electronic file to another title. An example is when a publisher would like the individual items in a bundle to be requested separately. The record would be marked 'file unavailable', and the related titles fields would contain the ISBNs of the items contained in the bundle. <RelatedProducts> composite containing <ReplacedByEAN13> or <h131>
Imprint The imprint the publisher uses for this title. Some textbook publishers do not use imprints, using their own name as the brand. Prentice Hall, Addison-Wesley (imprints of Pearson), Course Technology, Delmar (imprints of Cengage) <Imprint> composite <NameCodeType> or <b241> with value 02 and <b079> would contain imprint

Proposed Title Record fields
Routing Code An identifier for routing requests within the same publisher, needed when a publisher splits responsibility for processing requests for titles between divisions. These codes may or may not be aligned with imprints and would need to be confirmed with ATN staff to ensure proper routing of requests. "01, 02, 03", "OP1, PTR, CTL"
Custom Version Indicates if this title is a custom version. Custom versions may be related to standard editions, such as when an instructor can choose a subset of components from a standard edition.

Bundle Indicates if this title is comprised of a bundle of other titles. Ideally, information about the components of a bundle would be included in the Related Titles field.
