I am looking for advice on faceting locations.
We are currently using Getty's Thesaurus for Geographic Names in the
subject's subelement <geographic>. To accomplish faceting, we will use the
hierarchicalGeographic subelement and possibly switch to LCSH terms.
We are also thinking about faceting orginInfo's subelement <place> for
correspondence materials. I am not sure how we will approach this. I was
wondering if a hierarchicalGeographic subelement has been discussed for
originInfo element in the next MODS release.
Please let me know what work for your faceting projects and controlled
