Encoded Archival Description Tag Library, Version 2002
Information about the individual or organization responsible for the creation, accumulation, or assembly of the described materials before their incorporation into an archival repository. The <origination> element may be used to indicate such agents as correspondents, records creators, collectors, and dealers. Using the LABEL attribute may help identify for a finding aid reader the role of the originator, e.g., "creator," "collector," or "photographer." It is also possible to set the ROLE attribute on the name elements that are available within <origination>, i.e., <corpname>, <famname>, <name>, and <persname>.
The <origination> element is comparable to ISAD(G) data element 3.2.1 and MARC fields 100, 110, 700, and 710.
