Tags (separated by comma):
Ten tags total may be entered. These tags should provide an overview of the formal metadata. Suggested tags include: Institution name (in natural language if the authorized version is not in common use), key subject headings, the most heavily represented formats, the geographic place associated with the collection (if applicable), and names of any additional contributors. Enter subject headings as natural language. For example: United States--History--Revolution, 1775-1783 becomes Revolutionary War (1775-1783). Tags are separated by commas so this punctuation cannot be used within individual tags. To enter names, use direct order. Add dates in parentheses following the term they describe using the pattern: First name Last name (YYYY-YYYY). For example: Lewis Edward Lawes (1883-1947).
Example: Revolutionary War (1775-1783), Lewis Edward Lawes (1883-1947), black & white pictures, Nevada, Elko.
