Elizabeth,

This doesn't directly answer your question, but I came across this example of EAC in practice-designing a kind of structured version of Wikipedia for creators:

http://www.eoas.info/biogs/P000683b.htm

The underlying EAC record can be found here:

https://wiki.nla.gov.au/display/peau/EAC

They might have used an older version of EAC than the one currently on the books, but it's the same principle.

Best,

Jordon

Subject: BPG for EAC?


Rather than throw students immediately into EAD, I'm using EAC to allow them to get used to working with XML in this way -- and get a feel for oXygen.  Has anyone developed Guidelines for applying EAC in the real world?
