<c> Component

<c> is a wrapper element found within <dsc>, and which may be nested within another <c> element. Each <c> element identified an intellectually logical section of described materials, which need not coincide with the physical sections. Not every <c> corresponds to directly to a folder, etc. It may simply be a hierarchical stage.

<c> may have levels assigned through the @level or @otherlevel attribute, as seen in the attributes section below. Nesting <c> may also be done as <c01> to <c12>, to help a manual encoder track levels more easily and preserve the code’s structure or to help the transformation sheet handle components differently.

Attributes

  • @altrender – not required. Use if the content of the element should be displayed or printed differently than the rendering established in a style sheet for other occurrences of the element.
  • @audience – not required. Use to set whether the element’s contents will be visible to external users or to internal ones. Possible values are: “internal” and “external.”
  • @base – not required. May contain a URI to create a base URI used to resolve any relative URIs used within the child elements, if the base URI differs from the base URI of the EAD instance.
  • @encodinganalog – not required. May contain information to map this tag to a particular element in another schema.
  • @id – not required. Creates an ID for element. Can be used for linking.
  • @lang – not required. Three-letter code that indicates the language in which the element’s contents were written. It should come from ISO 639-2b.
  • @level – not required. The values of this attribute may be: class, collection, file, fonds, item, otherlevel, recordgrp, series, subfonds, subgrp, and subseries. For any other value of @level (such as from a locally-assigned vocabulary) choose “otherlevel” as the value, and specify name in @otherlevel attribute. Assigning an attribute to the highest-level <c> is highly-recommended.
  • @otherlevel – not required. If the designated value options for @level do not fit the repository needs, “otherlevel” should be used as the value for @level and the alternate term should be specified here.
  • @script – not required. Four-letter code that indicates the script in which the element’s contents were written. It should come from ISO 15924.

Child Elements

<c> must have a <did> element and may contain further <c> elements, as well as optional <accessrestrict>, <accruals>, <acqinfo>, <altformavail>, <appraisal>, <arrangement>, <bibliography>, <bioghist>, <controlaccess>, <custodhist>, <fileplan>, <head>, <index>, <legalstatus>, <odd>, <originalsloc>, <otherfindaid>, <phystech>, <prefercite>, <processinfo>, <relatedmaterial>, <relations>, <scopecontent>, <separatedmaterial>, <thead>, and <userestrict>. Note, since text is not used within this element, it serves as a wrapper.

DACS

Use DACS Section 1. Level of description for the @level attribute. (DACS 2013, pp.7-11)

		<p>This series consists of scrolls on which Slytherin recorded notes for the teaching legilimency, charms, and care of magical creatures. Notes include references to many books which no longer exist, lists of class topics, and detailed notes on the subjects. Many researchers find these useful for deriving an impression of Slytherin's teaching philosophy and priorities.</p>

			<p>Many researchers are unaware of Slytherin's time as a teacher of the Care of Magical Creatures class. His notes demonstrate a strong affinity with the darker magical creatures and certain letters between Slytherin and Helga Hufflepuff call into question his methods of binding particular creatures to his will.</p>

Changes from EAD 2002

<c> lost the attribute @tpattern and gained @lang and @script. It lost <dao> and dao-related elements and the deprecated <note>. It gained <relations> and <legalstatus>.
