Leigh certainly expresses a valid concern, which I can appreciate even
more after spending 10 minutes a few weeks ago downloading the sgml file
of LC's Federal Theater Project finding aid! It may just be ASCII text
and not images, but when there's that much of it, it still takes a while
to access. All the more reason, I would argue, to pursue delivery models
that don't force a "whole finding aid or nothing" approach onto end users.
