Is there material available to help beginning EAD document builders
to accurately use the hundreds of nested tags. I am looking for
something similar to AACR2 for MARC. I have downloaded some very
nice examples form the Web but the different archives are not using
the tags in exactly the same way. As I dive into creating some
lengthy and complicated registers for our archives I want to be sure
that my organization will be matching some national standard so that
my data can be used by SGML-html servers (Panorama, DynaWeb,
I-site) and can be shared with proposed national clearinghouses for
Am I on the right track here?
Right now I am relying on the tag library and examples I have
downloaded from the Web.
Any response would be helpful. I suspect other newbies on the list
might benefit from any comments but if you prefer please reply to me
