EAD Tag Library for Version 1.0


EAD Elements: <ptrgrp> Pointer Group

Description:

A wrapper element for two or more Pointer <ptr> or Reference <ref> elements used in an <indexentry>. Pointers and references are internal links that provide for movement from one place in the finding aid to another place in the same finding aid. When encoding an index in EAD, a name or entry is generally listed only once, followed by a <ptrgrp> containing the series of pointers and references that link the name or entry to the places in the finding aid where it appears. The <ptrgrp> prevents the name or entry from having to appear multiple times in the index.

May contain:

ptr, ref

May occur within:

indexentry

Attributes:

ALTRENDER#IMPLIED, CDATA
