Encoded Archival Description Tag Library, Version 2002
<physloc> Physical Location
Information identifying the place where the described materials are stored, such as the name or number of the building, room, stack, shelf, or other tangible area.
Do not confuse with <container>, which is used to identify the cartons, boxes, reels, folders, and other storage devices used to hold the described materials. Also do not confuse with <repository>, which is used to identify the institution or agency responsible for providing intellectual access to the described materials.
Like all Descriptive Identification <did> subelements, the <physloc> element has a LABEL attribute which may be used to provide a readily understandable heading for the element's content. The TYPE attribute may also be used to identify the nature of the storage location. For security reasons, the AUDIENCE attribute value may be set to "internal" to shield public access to storage location information.
The <physloc> element is comparable to MARC field 852.
