Introduction

Caption Abbreviation Sources identifies lists of abbreviations for captions used to identify numbering and chronology in metadata and assigns a code for each source.  The purpose of the source codes is to enable indication of the caption abbreviation source so that the captions may be interpreted.  For code assignment, general structure, usage, and maintenance guidelines see Source Codes for Vocabularies, Rules, and Schemes.

Arrangement of the List

Entries in the list are arranged in alphabetical order by the code and consist of the source code followed by the bibliographic citation for the source documentation. The citations are linked to the online source for some codes.

Code Structure

Each code consists of a maximum of 12 characters, including lowercase alphabetic characters, numeric characters 0 through 9, and the hyphen (-). Possible additions to codes are described in Source Codes.
