I did this.  Basically I intellectually represented them by using a call number classification system that implies parent-child relationships.  For example:


Restatements of the Law: ALI.01


First Restatement: ALI.01.001

Second Restatment: ALI.01.002

Third Restatment: ALI.01.003


And so forth.


Then, in the main restatements of the law finding aid, I link out to the children finding aids.  Since a finding aid’s top level can be any level of description, the top level in these finding aids is “series.”


Contact me off-list if you have any questions.  Hope that helps!

Hello all,


Are there any repositories out there who are separating long finding aids into separate EAD files?  If so, would you mind sharing your documentation of that process?  I have an idea of how we might do it, but would like to see how other repositories are handling this.


Best wishes,
