I'm wondering what the relative advantages to this approach would be over
describing the 6 letters as <c0x>s within the folder <c0x> and pointing to
the images, stored either in a directory on the server or in a database
technical metadata about the specs of each digitized image? My gut
reaction is that there must be some advantage to keeping the item
desriptions as part of the finding aid file, but then gut reactions have
proven wrong numerous times in the past ;-)
