See NLM's Fedora/Blacklight implementation for serials:

Root object metadata is from the MARC record for the whole work; leaf object metadata is volume-specific (it's hand-crafted).

Subject: [CODE4LIB] examples of displays for compound objects and metadata

We're migrating from CONTENTdm and trying to figure out how to display compound objects (or the things formerly known as compound objects) and metadata for the end user. Can anyone point me to really good examples of displaying items like this, especially where the user can see metadata for parts of the whole? I'm looking more for examples of the layout of all the different components on the page (or pages) rather than specific image viewers. Our new system is homegrown, so we have a lot of flexibility in deciding where things go.

We essentially have:
-the physical item (multiple files per item of images of text, plain text, pdf) -metadata about the item -possibly metadata about a part of the item (think title/author/subjects for a newspaper article within the whole newspaper issue), of which the titles might be used for navigation through the whole item.

I think Hathi Trust has a good example of all these components coming together (except viewing non-title metadata for parts), and I'm curious if there are others. Or do most places just skip creating/displaying any kind of metadata for the parts of the whole?

Thanks for any help!
