Institution Wrapper

A wrapper element to hold both the name of an institution (<institution>) and any identifiers for that institution (<institution-id>), for example, an INSI or Ringgold ID.


Common Practice: All levels of a multi-tier organization may be listed within a single <institution> element and given a single institution identifier. For example, a program, a department, and a university may be part of the same <institution>, inside a single <institution-wrap> with a single <institution-id>. Similarly both a corporation and a division within the corporation might be inside one <institution> element, inside a <institution-wrap> with a single institution identifier (<institution-id>). Alternatively, a divisional distinction such as an “organization” element with a subordinate “dept” and an “office” inside a department could tagged using multiple <institution> elements with the @content-type attribute differentiating institution, department, and office. Each of these divisions could be assigned an institutional identifier (<institution-id>), which would require the wrapper element <institution-wrap>.

Related Elements

An address (<address>) element contains a postal address and/or other contact information such as a company or organization name. If an address is divided into lines, the lines can be preserved using the <addr-line> element. Typically, the <addr-line> element holds one physical or logical line of an address, containing undifferentiated portions of an address such as organization names, street addresses, post box numbers, building numbers, mailstops, etc. They are called “lines” because addresses are frequently divided onto multiple lines, and this encoding allows that fact to be preserved. If the address is just a block of undifferentiated text, numbers, or special characters, the entire address may be placed inside a single <addr-line> element.
There are several ways to tag an address: An address element (<address>) does not contain any text, only lower-level address elements.
