I have a question in regards to a reprint of an edited volume I am helping to develop. For this production, their are numerous essay authors (chapter authors) and two main editors. However, editor metadata seems to take a back seat, so to speak, on a book’s homepage; instead, author metadata displays prominently in two locations: notably, near the top of the page just below the book’s title.
In our minds, it makes more sense to have the main editors names display prominently for an edited volume; however, it makes sense from a cataloging perspective to leave the editor metadata alone (not to provide the editor’s names as author metadata). Therefore, our question: is there a way of making the editor metadata more visible or even taking the place of the author metadata on a book’s homepage?
