  • 5 questions for Ben Goddard of Little, Brown about metadata [INTERVIEW]

Comments (3)

  • I know what metafiction is but I still don’t know what metadata actually is – a concrete example would help. Probably just me missing something obvious, so sorry, but I really would like to know. Thanks.

  • Hi Marianne, thanks for your question.
    Metadata, when referring to books, usually means the information we provide alongside assets to help with identification and discoverability. There are a number of different individual elements to this, including title, author, ISBN, through to description, territory information, keywords and other rights permitted for that asset (for example whether text-to-speech is allowed for an ebook asset). Hope that helps,Ben
