Pvt. Smith or PVT Smith? Abbreviating Military Ranks in Archival Descriptions
"Archival description is at its best when it follows prescribed standards and provides researchers with useful tools to uncover information about the primary sources they hope to find. Professional standards, such as DACS, aid in this endeavor. However, it is often up to institutions to implement their own standards for niche descriptive necessities. This article discusses my experience with creating one such standard for military collections."
