OK, another question for the collective wisdom. Let's say I have some
material that looks like this, and that it's all in Box 1 of a 5-box
c01 - Writings
c02 - History of Spain
c02 - History of England
c02 - History of Holland
c01 - something else...
Is it more appropriate to put the container information at the c01 level
(Writings), since all the child pieces are in the same box and they'll
inherit from the parent, or is it more appropriate to put the container
information at the lowest level, i.e. repeat it in each c02, so that each
piece has its own container information? Has anyone run into problems doing
it one way or the other?
The EAD application guidelines say something nutty about just sticking in a
container element wherever the material switches to a new container and not
worrying about what c0# you're in but that seems, well, a bit strange to me.
Doing that is likely to leave some elements with no accurate container
information based on the document tree and I'm not really comfortable with
