EAD Tag Library for Version 1.0


EAD Elements: <ref> Reference

Description:

An internal linking element that provides for movement from one place in a finding aid to another place in the same finding aid. Unlike the internal Pointer <ptr> element, the <ref> element may contain text and subelements that identify or describe the referenced object. The <ref> element may be used in a variety of ways in an encoded finding aid. For example, a <ref> may provide a dynamic link from one Component <c> to another related Component <c> in the same way that See and See also references direct readers of paper-based finding aids. Or, a <ref> might be used to direct the reader from text in a scope and content note to a description of a Component <c> in a contents list.

May contain:

#PCDATA, abbr, address, archref, bibref, blockquote, chronlist, corpname, date, emph, expan, extptr, extref, famname, function, genreform, geogname, lb, list, name, note, num, occupation, origination, persname, ptr, repository, subject, table, title, unitdate, unittitle
