EAD Tag Library for Version 1.0


EAD Elements: <titlepage> Title Page

Description:

A wrapper element within <frontmatter> that groups bibliographic information about an encoded finding aid, including its name, author, and other aspects of its creation and publication. It contains much of the same information found in the <filedesc> portion of the <eadheader>, such as the <titleproper>, <subtitle>, <author>, <sponsor>, <publisher>, and <date> of the finding aid. Although it is possible to generate an electronic or printed title page directly from the <eadheader>, use of the <titlepage> element permits more flexible sequencing of the information and may be more accommodating of local preferences, including displays of photographic illustrations, institutional logos, or other graphic images.

May contain:

address, author, bibseries, blockquote, chronlist, date, edition, list, note, num, p, publisher, sponsor, subtitle, table, titleproper

May occur within:
