We are creating a finding aid for our collection of City Directories. 

There are fiche, film and books.  The fiche and film are housed in a cabinet and that container type is showing up fine in the EAD.  Others we have tried are not working.

Does anyone have a list of allowed words in the “container type” field?   We would like it to state where are city directory books are located.


Thanks in advance,
