<titleStmt>

The <titleStmt> contains two subsections: <title> and <respStmt>.

<title>

<titleStmt> and <title> are used to indicate titles supplied by modern scholars, e.g. "Collectio Dionysio-Hadriana". For textual identifications supplied by medieval scribes, e.g., "Incipiunt Canones apostolorum," please use <ab type="rubric">. For the distinction between <ab type="rubric"> and <div type="rubric">, please see those headings respectively. <title> indicates the modern title of the text. It occurs in the <titleStmt><title> tags, where it indicates the main title, "[the collection name and manuscript shelfmark]", and takes the attribute @type="main":

    <titleStmt>
        <title type="main">Collectio Dionysio-Hadriana (councils), Oxford, Bodleian Library, Hatton 42</title>
        …
    </titleStmt>

<title> also occurs in the <msItem><title> tags, q.v., where it supplies the title of a particular component of the text. <title> only occurs in the <teiHeader>.

<respStmt>

<respStmt> indicates the names of the individuals responsible for the transcription and the encoding. If one person is responsible for the transcription and another for the encoding, these should be noted separately. If multiple people are responsible for either transcription or encoding, this may also be noted. If the same person is responsible for both, they may be noted together.

<resp> contains an element describing the nature of the person's responsibility for the transcription. It contains one child tag, <name>.

<name> identifies the person who performed the action described under <resp>. There can be multiple instances of <name> appearing under <resp>.
