I've checked around here at the Library of Congress (the EAD Listserv hosting institution) and there doesn't appear to be a way to download the whole batch of listserv email archives as near as we can tell.  

If we DO find a way, we will make sure to post it to the Listserv for future reference.  It would certainly make it easier for what you have in mind!

Very Best Wishes,

Glenn

Hi all,

I think I am subscribed to this mailinglist for about half a year.
The topics are quite interesting.

I would like to see what has been discussed in the past; from the very beginning till now.
There is an option to search in the history of this list here: http://listserv.loc.gov/listarch/ead.html.
However, I don't like to use this option.

I am wondering whether it is possible to download the entire mailing list as one file, so I can browse (and search) using my own tools?

Thanks and kind regards,

It is interesting to reflect on the degree to which numerous questions posed to this list are more about matters of arrangement and description than EAD itself.    But it has long been acknowledged that the common vocabulary that standards like EAD give us facilitates such discussions.   Please keep the questions coming; they stimulate important professional discussion.

Hi Michele,

I would think it's OK by EAD either way, and depends mostly on what you want out of this container listing. Is there a need for people to be able to pick out city names very easily? Do we assume they already know what is here and understand "A-G", or do they need to browse what is present? If what you are worried about is display issues and want city names appear in a list-like fashion, you could always use the EAD <list> element within your scope note. I think it's wise to stay away from line breaks if they aren't necessary. Or if you like the second method better but don't like the container repeating 20 times, you can suppress it in the Web output with your XSLT (see dsc6, 7, 12 or 13 of the EAD Cookbook for example code of how to do that).

Hello conventional wisdom --

Our standard procedure to date has been to use <c0#> no lower than the folder level, so if we have a folder and we want to list the individual items in it, the folder title is the <c0#><did><unittitle> and the list of items goes in a scope-content.  This has worked fine so far, but we are in the process of doing a large number of collections that are almost entirely in oversize packages with, obviously, no foldering at all.  Some of the boxes contain 30-40 items.  Assuming that we want the items listed, which if the following would be the optimal decision, do you think?  Or which adheres closest to the correct usage of the EAD elements?

<c02><did><unittitle>A-G [alpha delimiters for contents]</unittitle>
  <container type="Oversize">1</container></did>
  <scopecontent><p>Amsterdam<lb/>Belfast<lb/>Carthage<lb/>...[etc]

OR

<c02><did><unittitle>Amsterdam</unittitle><container type="Oversize">1</container></did></c02>
<c02><did><unittitle>Belfast</unittitle><container type="Oversize">1</container></did></c02>
<c02><did><unittitle>Carthage</unittitle><container type="Oversize">1</container></did></c02>
...[etc]

Or does it just not matter?  Obviously the end user doesn't care how it's done :)  Thoughts?.

Michele
