The Thema Sessions: Making the most of Thema
BIC Brunches are a series of live webinars which have been created for BIC members and non-members to attend to discuss book industry supply chain topics (including issues, successes, and challenges). Each BIC Brunch session is dedicated to one key area of the supply chain, offering attendees a unique opportunity to gather knowledge about that topic from experts in the field.
Join us for this online panel discussion session to hear how bookselling experts are making the most of Thema, and how you can work with them to maximise the discoverability opportunities this global subject classification scheme affords. The session will also include a look at what can be achieved by using Thema that can’t be achieved using “BIC Codes”, Attendees will have plenty of time for questions.
