Element Types

In RIMMF, there is support for different types of elements. Of course, there is the RDA Element, upon which the whole thing is based, but there are also some other element types that you can use.

We think it is important for you to tell at a glance the source of an element, caption, or vocabulary in a template, so we have assigned visual symbols to each non-RDA element type (RDA elements are not marked):

Element symbols

  • RDA:
  • User: §
  • MARC: ‡
  • Other: ¤
  • TMQ: †
  • Undefined: •

If an element/caption/vocabulary comes from any source other than RDA, and the person assigning the symbol remembered to indicate the source when they added the element, the symbol for that source will appear at the end of the Element Label in a RIMMF form (record or template).

For example, in–

Attributes for identifying the work †

–the “†” indicates that the source of this element/caption/vocabulary is TMQ (us).
