Dear EAD-listserv,

I'm writing to ask listserv members whether people using EAD are
sticking strictly to LC subject headings. We are considering
various options, one of which is to continue to use LC subject
headings, but to add our own locally controlled subject terms.
(Like most other archives we use local corporate and personal
names as well as LCNAFs, controlled in an Archivists' Toolkit
name-authority
database.)

I'd really appreciate some feedback, including the pros and cons
of sticking with LC, adding local subject terms, etc.

Thanks,
Christine
