Hi Everyone,

I have some EAD questions and am not sure if they were discussed here

While I understand that EAD has been used in an increasing number of
archives and manuscripts libraries to encode finding aids, there are
still a fair amount of institutions holding back on it. I am wondering
what could be the possible reasons preventing them from using EAD.

What you see as the long-term viability of EAD standard?

Has there been any effort to promote EAD as an official ANSI standard
like Dublin Core?

Any input on or off the list will be highly appreciated. Thanks.
