Use stdWrap.data (which is of the type getText).
It offers levelfield to fetch data form the rootline the same way as
leveluid, leveltitle and levelmedia do it.
To enable additional fields being fetched with levelfield too, you have to
add them to the list of rootline fields in the install tool.
Then you can do something like this:

lib.meta = TEXT
lib.meta {
    data = levelfield:-1, fieldname, slide

Additionally you might want to take a look at this:
Check out the getText section.
