Our center used EAD to create a finding aid for our oral history archive, 
funded by a Preservation and Access grant from the NEH and in partnership 
with the Indiana University Digital Library Program, which maintains the 
finding aid along with the other EAD finding aids on campus (Lilly Library, 
University Archives, etc.).  They are in the process of redesigning the 
portal for those finding aids and adding a search engine that will search 
within each finding aid.  (And of course I'm finding typos I need to correct 
in our finding aid!)  But you can check it out via our website:, and click on one of the 
alphabetical ranges, then on a project name to enter the finding aid for 
that project. And if you contact me offlist, I'll be happy to send you the 
EAD template we use for our records, so you can see how we used the tags.
