Hello Lyn,

I'm also a new user of METS but :

We are creating book page by page too. We do like this :

  <METS:structMap>
    <METS:div LABEL="Un Coup de tête de Georges Feydeau" DMDID="N076165DMD01
N076165DMD02" TYPE="MONOGRAPHIE">
      <METS:div LABEL="Page non paginée" DMDID="N076165DMD03" ORDER ="00000001"
ORDERLABEL="00000000N" TYPE="PAGE">
        <METS:fptr FILEID="N076165FID00000001" />
      </METS:div>
      <METS:div LABEL="Page non paginée" DMDID="N076165DMD04" ORDER ="00000002"
ORDERLABEL="00000000N" TYPE="PAGE">
        <METS:fptr FILEID="N076165FID00000002" />
      </METS:div>
      <METS:div LABEL="Page non paginée" DMDID="N076165DMD04" ORDER ="00000003"
ORDERLABEL="00000000N" TYPE="PAGE">
        <METS:fptr FILEID="N076165FID00000003" />
      </METS:div>
      <METS:div LABEL="Page non paginée" DMDID="N076165DMD05" ORDER ="00000004"
ORDERLABEL="00000000N" TYPE="PAGE">
        <METS:fptr FILEID="N076165FID00000004" />
      </METS:div>
      <METS:div LABEL="Page 4" DMDID="N076165DMD06 N076165DMD12" ORDER

        <METS:fptr FILEID="N076165FID00000005" />
      </METS:div>
      <METS:div LABEL="Page 5" DMDID="N076165DMD07" ORDER ="00000006"

      </METS:div>
      <METS:div LABEL="Page 7" DMDID="N076165DMD09" ORDER ="00000008"
ORDERLABEL="00000007A" TYPE="PAGE">
        <METS:fptr FILEID="N076165FID00000008" />
      </METS:div>
      <METS:div LABEL="Page 8" DMDID="N076165DMD10" ORDER ="00000009"

You should use DisplayOrientation attribute of the MIX metadata to indicate
orientation, see :

Hello

At the National Library of Wales we're just about to start using METS
and we've come across somethings we just can't figure out so perhaps the
list can help us.

1. We're creating a digital object from a book page by page, but in some
instances both pages are needed to make sense of a table which is spread
across both. Would you use the <par> element to indicate this, and then
how would the tagging work with the <div>?

2. With the same book, the pages are viewed as "portrait" but sometimes
the tables should be viewd as landscape in order to read them, how would
you indicate this in METS?

Thanks

Lyn
