When saving as PDF (or creating a PS file with "Generate Acrobat Data" 
turned): the Author, Title, Subject and Keywords fields can be set once in 
FrameMaker (File > File Info) -- at the book level (if you convert the book 
to a single PDF), or at the chapter level (when a book is converted to 
separate chapter PDFs) -- and populate the corresponding fields in  PDFs.

See http://www.microtype.com/ImprovePDF01.html for information on other 
fields and additional options.
