Encoded Archival Description Tag Library, Version 2002
<subarea> Subordinate Area
A name or phrase that indicates a secondary or subsidiary administrative level within a repository or other corporate body; a specialized area of subject or other collecting emphasis within a larger unit; or an ancillary collecting area based on the physical form of the materials. This information may be included as plain text within the <repository> and <corpname> elements, or it may be encoded within <repository> and <corpname> as separately tagged <subarea> elements. The latter approach facilitates the filtering of finding aids by administrative division, department, or specialty. For <corpname>s other than <repository>, the <subarea> might help refine searches of large corporate entities, such as government agencies, which share common words, e.g., United States.
