We are thinking along the same lines! I found a tag library in Spanish and
one in French, both of which I could work with fairly well. But the
nuances of the languages would trip me up, I know. I was hoping that
posting to that list will yield someone having translated the tag library
into English for us.
I need to go and look at the dtd and find out what fields they have and if
any are deemed mandatory by the dtd. That might mean changing that test
form template I've created.

Subject: Re: EAG tag library
I don't know if one exists. I have the DTD, and you could derive a list of
tags and characteristics from it.
When you mentioned it in class yesterday, I thought about the directory
project -- rather than developing one of our own, we should look into using
the EAG, which I had completely forgotten about.
I just pulled the JAO article about it: it provides some high-level
guidance about the intent and structure. It's written about the Alpha v.2
iteration. I suppose there's a newer one...
Subject: EAG tag library
I am interested in finding a tag library for the Encoded Archival Guide
(EAG) out of Spain. Surprisingly, I found an English-language DTD, but no
tag library. Any ideas on how to get one, if such a thing exists?
