Related Elements

A book collection <collection> may be divided into four parts:

  1. the <collection-meta> (the metadata or header information for a collection);
  2. the <book-front> (textual material that precedes the actual contents of a collection, for example, author biographical information or a preface);
  3. the <body> (textual and graphical content for the collection, typically providing summaries of the books in the collection); and
  4. any <back> (ancillary information from the collection’s books, such as a glossary, reference list, or appendix).
