MMFC:Elements/Container

From Manual - MMFC. Medieval Manuscripts in Flemish Collections


The elements or datafields listed here are those associated with the manuscript at the level of the individual container. For a bound volume this is typically the binding, but the container could also be a folder or box holding loose items. For most manuscripts shelfmark and container are fully aligned. The identifier record in the MMFC database will then be related to a single dependent container record. Other manuscripts, however, represented by a single shelfmark consist of multiple volumes. For such manuscripts a single identifier record will refer to several dependent container records. The elements listed below are registered for each of them in turn.
