We're planning to update our Metadata crosswalk
(http://www.getty.edu/research/conducting_research/standards/intrometadata/3_crosswalks/index.html). We have already MARC21 (ex-USMARC) to EAD...is there a need for a mapping from EAD to MARC?

> we plan on creating MARC records from EAD instances.
> We want our conversion method to fulfil these three requirements :
> 1. our two steps process will first convert from EAD into some
> XML-ized MARC and then from this XML-MARC to ISO 2709 ;
> 2. the first conversion will use an XSLT stylesheet ;
> 3. this XSLT transformation will be able to select any EAD element
> and attribute, not only elements qualified by an 'encodinganalog'
> Therefore, I have two questions : the first is motivated by
> curiosity and the second by... interest.
> 1. What is the /raison d'etre /of the 'encodinganalog' attribute ?
> What is the advantage of an internal crosswalk over an external one
> ? Is it just a 'relic' of old times, before the XSLT and XPATH
> possibilities ?
> 2. Is there somewhere an available XSLT stylesheet to convert from
> EAD into, by instance, MARC 21 XML schema (Library of Congress) ?
> It would be a useful beginning point for us.
