Colleagues of the overlapping music library, archives and EAD worlds,

I would be interested in hearing from those of you who have processed
collections of music and have consciously chosen to encode or to not
encode their finding aids in EAD.

I want to be clear that I am not speaking about papers of musicians or
composers, but of accumulations of scores (published or manuscript) or
sound recordings (again, issued and not). I would like to hear what
specific factors influenced you or your institution to embrace EAD for
these collections or decide that it was not desirable to do so.

Links to examples of what is done at your institution would be most appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Peter Hirsch
