Could you please summarize any responses you receive for the list? In
addition to the standards you mention, I also wonder about ISAD-G and
other international OAI compliant standards.

I am seeking opinions in the matter of relatedencoding preferences. I'm
interested in hearing justifications for mapping to either Dublin Core
MARC (or mixed practices using both). I understand the potential for
mapping to MARC for the creation of catalog records. What do people see
the purposes of mapping to Dublin Core? Do you consider it more
far-reaching in its potential for future harvesting? If so, how?
The EAD Cookbook recommends setting mapping to MARC21 in <ead> but the
guidelines seems to suggest that Dublin Core be used for <eadheader>
MARC for <archdesc>.
