Articles and books - the basic publication units - could be disassembled to semantic building blocks. For scientific journal articles, such blocks include figures and tables, among others. Providing meta-data for figures and tables, and making them accessible per se opens up new ways of presenting and using scientific information - like producing an image-database on certain subjects, based on figures published in different journals. These meta-data and copyrights should be supplied by the publishers, who in turn might require authors to provide this information. Some examples are shown from a small astronomy journal, the Information Bulletin on Variable Stars.
