collection-type Collection, Type of

The <collection-meta> element describes the bibliographic metadata for a book series, book set, or other book collection of which a <book-part> is a member. This attribute provides a publisher-determined name for the “type” of such a collection. Expected values include terms of publishing art such as “book set”, “book series”, or “book article set”. Some publishers may use this to specify a particular book series (“Out-of-Door Guidebooks” or “After-school Investigations”) instead of a more general type of collection.
