<linkgrp> Linking Group

<linkgrp> is wrapper element that contains two or more linking elements which form an extended link group so as to enable a set of multidirectional, out-of-line links. It may be used within <abstract>, <bibliography>, <container>, <creation>, <descrules>, <dimensions>, <emph>, <entry>, <event>, <extent>, <item>, <label>, <langmaterial>, <langusage>, <materialspec>, <origination>, <otherfindaid>, <p>, <physdesc>, <physfacet>, <physloc>, <relatedmaterial>, <repository>, <separatedmaterial>, <unitdate>, <unitid>, and <unittitle.


  • 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.”
  • ID – not required. Creates an ID for element. Can be used for linking.
  • LINKTYPE – fixed. Value must be “locator.”
  • ROLE – not required. Information that explains to application software the part that a remote resource plays in a link.
  • TITLE – not required. A viewable caption.


<linkgrp> may contain <arc>, <extptrloc>, <extrefloc>, <ptrloc>, <refloc>, and <resource>.
