Status Optional
Datatype
Sample values include:
main
main title
sub
(subordinate) subtitle, title of part
alt
(alternate) alternate title, often in another language, by which the work is also known
short
abbreviated form of title
desc
(descriptive) descriptive paraphrase of the work functioning as a title
Note

This attribute is provided for convenience in analysing titles and processing them according to their type; where such specialized processing is not necessary, there is no need for such analysis, and the entire title, including subtitles and any parallel titles, may be enclosed within a single title element.

levelindicates the bibliographic level for a title, that is, whether it identifies an article, book, journal, series, or unpublished material.
Status Optional
Datatype
Legal values are:
a
(analytic) the title applies to an analytic item, such as an article, poem, or other work published as part of a larger item.
m
(monographic) the title applies to a monograph such as a book or other item considered to be a distinct publication, including single volumes of multi-volume works
j
(journal) the title applies to any serial or periodical publication such as a journal, magazine, or newspaper
s
(series) the title applies to a series of otherwise distinct publications such as a collection
u
(unpublished) the title applies to any unpublished material (including theses and dissertations unless published by a commercial press)
Note

The level of a title is sometimes implied by its context: for example, a title appearing directly within an analytic element is ipso facto of level ‘a’, and one appearing within a series element of level ‘s’. For this reason, the level attribute is not required in contexts where its value can be unambiguously inferred. Where it is supplied in such contexts, its value should not contradict the value implied by its parent element.
