I'd like to repeat Eileen Ielmini's query a few days back, asking about EAD
1.0 and whether/when it would be available at Library of Congress' web site.
See Jackie Dooley's posting from earlier this summer below.
Would anyone care to update us on when all the new files will be available
for FTP? Thank you in advance.
