|Contributor Type List
The role of an individual who contributed to the archival materials. The roles of individual contributors include producer, cameraman, writer, editor, narrator, etc.
|Enables users to search for archival materials by the people responsible for authoring or contributing to the archival materials.
|This element and Personal Contributor are dependent on each other. For each personal contributor, Personal Contributor and Personal Contributor Type must both be included. If one person has contributed in multiple ways, he or she may be represented in Personal Contributor once and associated with several terms in Personal Contributor.
If the type of contributor is unknown or uncertain, then leave Personal Contributor and Personal Contributor Type empty 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.
In cases where an individual is named in the series title but is not the archival creator, place the individual's name in this field and select "Originator" as Contributor Type.
