Container element to hold the metadata pertaining to the electronic transcription (digital edition) of a work, as opposed to the metadata about the work itself
Many of the elements in the digital edition metadata are identical to elements in the book metadata (<book-meta>), but their content will refer to the electronic XML copy of the book, not to the work as a whole or to the specific printed volume. For example, the <contributor> element in the book metadata will name the book’s author, editor, illustrator, or other person in some primary creative role. In contrast, the <contributor> in the digital edition metadata began his or her effort with a particular print volume and has played a role in the transcription, annotation, emendment, translation, etc. of that printed book for the electronic archives.
The content of this element should only be used to record information that is different between the print and electronic editions, for example, where:
<!ELEMENT digital-edition-meta %digital-edition-meta-model; >
The following, in order:
<book> <book-meta>...</book-meta> <digital-edition-meta> <book-id pub-id-type="other">walhn1-digital</book-id> <contrib-group> <contrib contrib-type="editor"> <name><surname>Reyes</surname> <given-names>Amanda</given-names></name> </contrib> </contrib-group> <history> <date date-type="edited"> <month>March</month><year>2004</year> </date> </history> <notes> <p>Electronic text for Medicine in the Americas</p> </notes> </digital-edition-meta> <body>...</body> </book>
