Encoded Archival Description Tag Library, Version 2002
<titlestmt> Title Statement
A required wrapper element within the <filedesc> portion of <eadheader> that groups information about the name of an encoded finding aid and those responsible for its intellectual content. Like much of the <eadheader>, the <titlestmt> element is modeled on an element found in the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) DTD, and its subelements must adhere to the following prescribed sequence: a required <titleproper>, followed by an optional <subtitle>, optional <author>, and optional <sponsor>.
The <titlestmt> relates to the finding aid and should not be confused with Title <title>, used to encode the formal names of works such as monographs, serials, paintings, etc., listed in the finding aid. Also do not confuse with Title of the Unit <unittitle>, used to encode the name of the described materials.
