Main Page > Metadata Schema > Place of Publication

This field records the name of the place where the map was published. For the North Carolina Maps project, this is a controlled vocabulary field, giving the full, proper name of the place. Places should be described according to AACR2. Place names assigned by the cataloger should be given in brackets. Do not include question marks in this field.

While the full, common, English version of the place name is captured here, any alternate versions that appear on the face of the map will be recorded in the Caption field.
