    • authors,
    • entity type (magazine or book),
    • categories/keywords,

    • page count,
    • publisher,
    • title,
    • publication date, and
    • a (Google Books) URL.

    For the heck of it, this plugin also support creating API responses from existing metadata. This benefits no one.
