24 January 2016 DOI: 10.4400/akjh Go to latest Issue All ONIX standards and documentation – including this document – are copyright materials, made available free of charge for general use.
This also applies to the matching Supply Update message.
Three years prior notice of this sunsetting of support was given by EDIt EUR and the ONIX International Steering Committee, and for several years, all users have been strongly advised to migrate to ONIX 3.0 which will remain fully supported for the foreseeable future.
All versions of ONIX earlier than 2.1 are termed ‘obsolete’.
At sunset, documentation and various XML tools for version 2.1 were withdrawn.
However, certain codelists that are unique to 2.1 (for example codelists 7, 10 and 78) have continued to be included in the downloadable codelist files, and have been updated as normal throughout 2015.
This ‘twilight’ support for 2.1 codelists comes to an end with this issue of the codelists in January 2016 (Issue 32), and hereafter, codelists that are not used with ONIX 3.0 – 7, 10, 78 etc – will not be updated.
They will be included in their ‘frozen’ form in downloadable codelist files at least until the end of 2016, but may be removed altogether in 2017.
This document contains ONIX for Books codelists Issue 32, intended primarily for use with ONIX 2.1 and 3.0, arranged in a single table for reference and printing.
They may also be used as controlled vocabularies, independent of ONIX. This document does not differentiate between codelists for ONIX 3.0 and those for earlier releases.
For details of which code list to use with which data element in each version of ONIX, please consult the main for the appropriate release.
Occasionally, a handful of codes within a particular list are defined as either deprecated or not valid for use in ONIX 3.0, or with a particular data element.
