EADiva has just migrated to a static site. If you see broken links or behavioral errors, please let me know.

<seriesstmt> Series Statement

If the encoded finding aid belongs to a published monographic series, use the <seriesstmt>, a wrapper element within <filedesc>, to encode information about the series. The information may simply be encoded in <p> tags or include the <titleproper> and <num> elements for greater specificity.

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.”
  • ID – not required. Creates an ID for element. Can be used for linking.
  • ENCODINGANALOG – not required. May contain information to map this tag to a particular element in another schema.

Subelements

All text within <seriesstmt> must be encoded within subelements. The generic elements <p> and <num>, and specific element <titleproper> may all be used.

Our EAD file so far

I’m going to refer to a fictional “Bell Family Papers” as the series:
