Here are a few more specific requests that we have come up with here at Yale:
Make <arrangement> and <organization> part of m.desc.elems. These
are atomic pieces of information that should not be subsumed within
<scopecontent>. They may appear separately from the narrative scope and
Make <relatedmaterial> part of m.desc.elems. This information
doesn't necessarily appear only in an appendix.
Make <head> available in <did>. We have a heading "Overview of
Papers/Records" that precedes the <archdesc><did>. <head> is available
within <c>, but the top level of description does not have a <c> and starts
I invite my Yale colleagues to submit any other suggestions or requests that
we had that I have forgotten to include.
