Remarks

Multiple physDesc sub-elements may be used to describe the physically separate parts of a single source. The data attribute may be used to reference one or more features that occur in this particular source. A URI referencing a description of the related item may be placed in the target attribute.This element is modelled on elements in the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) and Encoded Archival Description (EAD) standards.
