Any suggestions on expressing Washington, DC in mods:hierarchicalGeographic?
We are doing a project to describe early American land records.
In most cases we are dealing with a state, so we do the following:
In the TGN, District of Columbia is labeled as a “national district.” And MARC has:
$b - First-order political jurisdiction (NR)
$c - Intermediate political jurisdiction (R)
which would work.
So, any thoughts on how to do Washington, DC in MODS?
