Optimal Workflow for Creating Titles with ONIX Feed

NetGalley will accept full ONIX feeds containing title metadata for all of your titles. We will accept updates to those title records as well—so as information changes or is added to your metadata, it will automatically change for those titles active in NetGalley. ONIX feeds typically contain records for all of the titles you publish, including backlist—the vast majority of which will not be active in NetGalley. So, once we have your ONIX feed, your team can “activate” title records in NetGalley by pressing Create New within the NetGalley client account (for marketers or publicists who would like to set up an individual title) or uploading a manifest file (to set up multiple titles at once).

The manifest is a simple CSV or text file with two columns—ISBN and Title Name—that tells us which titles to pull into NetGalley. More information about manifests can be found here.

For clients using ONIX, your ONIX record will populate the basic title information into your title record in NetGalley. You will be able to add NetGalley-specific notes, Digital Press Kit files, and links within the NetGalley client account when reviewing the book details..

The optimal workflow order is:

  1. ONIX feed
  2. Manifest file (to indicate which books should be created in the NetGalley client account)--only if creating multiple titles; otherwise use the Create New button within your account
  3. Covers & content files (can be added simultaneously)
