Dublin Core

Word Categories

A vocabulary of metadata terms used to describe e-books and other resources.

Some examples of Dublin Core terms that apply to e-books are: Title, Subject, Publisher, Language, and Rights.

The EPUB format allows for the inclusion of Dublin Core metadata, and a well-produced file will have a complete metadata set that has been verified with the author so that the book can be properly searched and indexed.
