What's Metadata?

What do you think makes an ePub book different from others at first glance? Generally speaking, when you read an ePub book, the first thing that catches your eyes is the title, and then the author. Here both title and author are metadata properties of an ePub book. Then what is metadata? Simply put, metadata is "data about data", which is often used to identify, evaluate and track your resources for better management. As metadata provides you with some detailed information of data, such as creation data, description, language, publisher, etc, you will be able to find your needed file among numerous resources in a short time by classifying and searching for keywords. So it is of great importance to edit metadata of your ePub book carefully.
