Hi all,


I have asked a similar question to this in the past, but I am looking for responses from users of either Ex Libris or SirsiDynix Integrated Library Systems.


How are users of the above mentioned ILS creating EADs?  What tools are you using (Archivist’s Toolkit, Archon, XML editors, etc.)?  What is your workflow for creating these along with MARC records?  How are the tools for creating EADs integrated into your ILS?  Are they completely separate, or are you able communicate back and forth between the systems so you do not have to rekey any data?


Any information about how you are doing EADs in conjunction with these systems would be greatly appreciated, especially workflow for creating the EADs, and how this is done in conjunction with other cataloging/descriptive tasks within the system. 


Thank you,
