Back in June this year there was some discussion on this list of converting
MARC records to SGML format using scripts available from the LC MARC SGML
site http://lcweb.loc.gov/marc/marcsgml.html and then using the
transformation capabilities of XSL to convert them from MARC DTD to EAD DTD.
Michael Fox mentioned that such techniques would be discussed in the EAD
Application Guidelines (which I haven't read yet).
What I need to know is where I can find a document which explicitly maps
MARC fields/sub-fields to EAD elements. Is there an "official" mapping that
I am overlooking, or are people just developing their own mappings for their
own projects? If the latter, is anyone willing to share the fruits of their
I'd be grateful for any advice.
