    What controlled vocabulary format should I use to describe specific rooms within a notable building?

      Hi all! I am putting together an Omeka resource for other staff at my historic site. I would like to create an interactive exhibit with details about items in our collection, and I would like to make it possible to display all items in a room on one page. To do so, I will need to create a tag for each room, and I would like to do so using a controlled vocabulary format.

       

      I know the Library of Congress Authorities File is one good resource for place names -- for example, "Monticello (Va.)" -- but I am unsure how to create a tag for a specific room within that place. For example, "Monticello (Va.) -- Tea Room". Can anyone point me towards guidelines for creating local tags, or recommend another way of tackling this problem?
