EAD Tag Library for Version 1.0


EAD Elements: <title> Title

Description:

The formal name of a work, such as a monograph, serial, or painting, listed in a finding aid. Subtitles of such works are not separately encoded but may instead be listed as part of the <title> element.

Do not confuse with <titleproper>, which is used for the title of the encoded finding aid. Also do not confuse with <unittitle>, which is used to encode the name of the described materials, such as the title of a collection, record group, fonds, series, file, or item. Do not confuse with the TITLE attribute which is found in several linking elements. The <title> element may be used inside of <unittitle>, and it is possible that a <unittitle> may contain no text other than that which is further specified by the <title> element. (See examples below.)

The ENTITYREF or HREF attributes may be used to name either the entity or pointer when linking to a machine-readable version of the cited <title>. The RENDER attribute permits specification of how the content of a particular <title> element should be displayed or printed, e.g., bold, italics, quoted, etc. The <title> element is comparable to MARC fields 130, 240, 245, 630, 730, and 740.

#PCDATA, date, emph, extptr, lb, num, ptr
