Aaron: This doesn't look like a legal use of the <physloc> tag, from my
reading. However, I don't have any ideas of a better tag. Others?

"Books are easy! Ninety-five percent of them exist in multiple copies and
are now easily accessible through international databases. It is the
scholarly resources hidden in archives that we need to make more visible."

Subject: Greetings,


Our Library is putting Finding Aids on the Web.  We're including a link
to the online catalog record of the collection each finding aid is for.
We aren't sure of the best place to put this reference and I didn't find
any similar examples on EAD sites.

Here's one option we have considered:

<archdesc level="collection" type="register">
<unittitle>COLLECTION NAME</unittitle>
<physloc>Click here for the catalog record and location
information:<extptr href="http://link_to_catalog_record"/></physloc>

All suggestions and help are appreciated.
