How to Record Place Types

     

4.6.1.1

 

 

In the Place Record
To record place types in a place record, follow the rules in Chapter 3.5: Place Types.

     

4.6.1.2

 

 

Adding to the Place Type List
Most necessary terms for place types should already be in the place type list. If you feel you need to add a new place type, try looking for a synonym. If you still feel you must add one, consult with your supervisor.

  • If you must add a term, position it within the appropriate numeric range of the codes, so that similar things are included in a range of sequential codes.
