We did not include them, although there was discussion about it. It was decided that this is a resource meant for learning and that the depth of description, while entirely accurate within EAD3 and sufficient for basic finding aids, did not reflect the full spectrum of EAD3 use. A good stylesheet has a lot more to take into account.

That said! The roundtable remains interested, as far as I know, in collecting use cases from the field including stylesheets (from a cookbook perspective). And a stylesheet or two may be added.

Does it include style sheets for rendering EAD3 into HTML or other outputs?  Or perhaps that’s a future goal :)

Subject: EAD3 Toolkit


As announced at the annual meeting of the EAD Roundtable, the Steering Committee put together an introductory guide to valid EAD3 files. The starter toolkit can be found here: https://github.com/saa-ead-roundtable/ead3-toolkit


It consists of three sample valid EAD3 files, which also meet DACS requirements for Required and Optimum levels of description (respectively called "minimum" and "optimum" in the filenames), and an element-by-element description of the elements and their use with links to the EAD3 tag library and DACS (as relevant). While the Steering Committee is aware that other content standards are used internationally, we felt the DACS integration was important for the Roundtable's SAA membership. We welcome pull requests to add versions which comply with other international standards or additional rows in the documentation table to cite other standards.


The toolkit documentation also contains a section on validating your EAD3 file, which may prove useful to those already familiar with EAD but validating against the RNG or XSD for the first time.
