We are in the early stages of implementing EAD. We want to describe our archival record groups primarily at the series level as separate EAD instances, and we want to create an instance that represents the parent record that will link all of the series together. Using the EAD elements, <eadgrp>, <archdescgrp> and <dscgrp> seems to be the way to do this, but we are struggling a bit to figure out how to apply these elements. So, first question, are we correct in thinking that this is the best way to go about achieving our goal and, second, would someone who has used these elements in this fashion be willing to supply a sample document or documents?
