How you do it depends entirely on what you're describing with your 
metadata.  If you consider each page a separate resource, put the 
metadata on each one.  If your resource consists of multiple pages, 
you probably only need the metadata on the first one.  It's that 
simple, but you're right--not anywhere on the DCMI webpages.
