#83 usage history


If we want to allow to keep information about a
manuscript together in a file (like the custodialHist)
it would be an idea to add to <history> a new element
<usage>. Here would be grouped information about users
(and publications deriving from the usage?) and loans
(e.g. for exhibitions).

Content then could be formed by elements of
model.nameLike.agent and model.dateLike.

    The distinction between <history> and <custodialHist> is
    that the former relates to things which happend to the ms
    before it came into the collection, and the latter to things
    that happened afterwards. I think the things you're talking
    about are all types of custodial event: certainly there are
    examples of people using this element to record such things
    as loans for exhibitions.

    The <provenance> element is used within <history> to record
    anything that happened to the ms between its creation and
    its acquisition, so could be used for things like loans as

    I am therefore closing this request: feel free to open it if
    you would like to suggest a different element name for
    <provenance> or if I have completely misunderstood!
