The Library of Congress, Manuscript Division, wishes to suggest
that access term elements be added to the content model for the
Justification: This would allow <controlaccess> terms to be used
in heads where appropriate.
Example of use: Finding aids for collections of family papers
typically include biographical notes for more than one person.
Each such note is tagged as a separate <bioghist> within one
larger <bioghist>. The heading for each subordinate <bioghist> is
the name of the family member, which is not used elsewhere within
that person's <bioghist>. Tagging the names as heads enables us
to pull the name into the navigator window, but not to code for
searching with other <persname>s in the finding aid.
Example of proposed use (for Doe family papers):
Jan. 1</date><event>Born, Washington,
<chronlist> etc. </bioghist></bioghist>
