<part> Part

<part> is a new element in EAD3 and a required child element of many current elements. It is used to encode granular segments within control access-type elements, such as <persname>. These elements must contain at least one <part> even if they are not otherwise segmented. An example might be:

<persname encodinganalog="600" normal="Russel, Martha A. (Martha Anita), 1941-2010" source="lcnaf"><part localtype="familyname">Russel</part><part localtype="forename">Martha A.</part><part localtype="fullerform">(Martha Anita)</part><part localtype="date">1941-2010</part></persname>

In this case, the repository has decided to use @localtype to allow for very specific searching. A repository which decided that it didn’t have the resources to be this specific might simply encode it as:

<persname encodinganalog="600" normal="Russel, Martha A. (Martha Anita), 1941-2010" source="lcnaf"><part>Russel</part><part>Martha A.</part><part>(Martha Anita),</part<part >1941-2010</part></persname>

or even:

<persname encodinganalog="600" normal="Russel, Martha A. (Martha Anita), 1941-2010" source="lcnaf"><part>Russel, Martha A. (Martha Anita), 1941-2010</part></persname>

It’s up to the repository to set out preferred practices.

  • @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.”
  • @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.

On access terms and other elements whose content is drawn from an authority file, the unique identifier for the term being used. If this attribute is used, @source should also be used to identify the authority file. On access terms and other elements whose content is drawn from an authority file, the unique identifier for the term being used. If this attribute is used, @source should also be used to identify the authority file.
  • @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.
  • @localtype – not required. This attribute may be used within a number of elements. Its use and values are not defined by the schema and may be defined locally.
