Ancillary or supporting material that is not included as part of the main textual content of a book but that follows the body of material that composes the book. Back Matter, for example, might include: appendices, glossaries, and bibliographic reference lists.
While ancillary material, such as appendices, may follow the entire contents of a book, a publisher may prefer that such ancillary material follow the content of the book component where it is referenced. The NCBI Book DTD has been designed so that ancillary material may be included in the back matter of a <book> or <book-part> element.
Conversion Note: The <sec> element can be used within the Back Matter <back> to tag material that has not been explicitly named as one of the other back matter components, that is, it is not named as an appendix, an acknowledgment, a glossary, etc. For example, tables are frequently placed in the back matter, with no other designation than a label such as “Table 6”, or a title such as “Epochs of Geologic Time”.
