Organizational Contributor Type
|Mandatory||Repeatable||Data Type||Authority||Level Available||A/V Only||Public Element|
|No||Yes||Variable Character Length (40)||Contributor Type List||Series
The role of an organization that contributes to the creation of archival materials, such as producer, writer, or editor.
Organizational entities include meetings, conferences, commissions, production groups, and Federal agencies: any entity other than an individual.
|Purpose:||Enables users to search for archival materials by the role of the organizations responsible for authoring or contributing to the archival materials.|
|Relationship:||This element and Organizational Contributor are dependent on each other. For each organizational contributor, Organizational Contributor and Organizational Contributor Type must both be included. If one organization has contributed in multiple ways, it may be represented in Organizational Contributor once and associated with several terms in Organizational Contributor Type.|
If the type of contributor is unknown or uncertain, select "Other" and explain the circumstances further in Scope and Content Note. For example, a film may have the words "presented by" on it without clearly identifying the role of the presenter.
