One finding aid is accessible through the link to "Finding aids" on our web site; requires
Panorama to view (see Samuel Abraham Goudsmit Papers)
Have nearly finished second finding aid; both are quite long, legacy finding aids with unusual
EAD working environment: Windows 95.
Applications used: WordPad; WordPerfect 8/Pro-Sgml; WordPerfect 5.1 macros; Panorama
Pro. Panorama is still problematic for me and I still ask those more knowledgeable for help.
Have learned that in WP8/SGML, when you open or insert incomplete or invalid SGML
documents, you must make sure NOT to check the box asking "Insert missing tags..." in the
Open Document window, or the software may not be able to read or validate your tags.
I am also using various other software tools (scripts, macros, NSGMLS) for automating the
tagging and parsing of the container lists, as they are long, repetitive and time-consuming!

paragraph for us - so others may avoid the pitfalls of faulty software
In particular, I am hoping to find info. on:
