EAD Tag Library for Version 1.0


EAD Elements: <ptr> Pointer

Description:

An empty internal linking element that uses attributes to provide for movement from one place in a finding aid to another place in the same finding aid. Unlike the <ref> element, the <ptr> element cannot contain text and subelements to describe the referenced object.

Do not confuse with <extptr> which is used to connect the EAD document to an external electronic object, which is not part of the described materials.

See related linking elements <extptr>, <extptrloc>, <extref>, <extrefloc>, <linkgrp>, <ptrgrp>, <ptrloc>, <ref>, and <refloc>.
