Hi all,

The Archives Hub has a contributor who wants to include the location of the reading room in the EAD descriptions. This is because they have two separate sites, with some archives at one and some at another, but they are both part of the same repository. I don't think there is anything within EAD that answers this type of need. I wonder if this should be part of an EAD description, but for them, it is important that when a researcher finds a description, they can clearly see where they have to go to access the archive. I think they often end up going to the wrong library, and not being very pleased when told that it's actually in another library a few miles away.  

Could you add some kind of identifier for each reading room and then let use the stylesheet to display the different locations?
