Thank you for taking the initiative to model an EAD3 template. I want to second Ruth’s suggestion that you post it on GitHub where it can be shared with (and forked by) the broader community.


I look forward to taking a look.

Hi Nicholas,


Thanks for your work on that! The FAQ should probably be revised, but yes there are still very few examples or templates for EAD in action. Since files attached to the listserv don't go through, could you send a link to the file on GitHub/somewhere else you've uploaded it?

Hello everyone,


I am an archival student at Dominican University, and I've created an EAD3 finding aid as part of my practicum for my last semester. I've noticed that the SAA's Frequently Asked Questions about EAD and EAD3 states that there are no examples of EAD3 in action, and I'd like to submit my work as a potential EAD3 template. 


My EAD3 document is well-formed, and I validated my document using a file that I took from Github's EAD3 1.00. In addition to my EAD3 template, I've attached the .xsd file that I used for validation. 


Let me know if my EAD3 example needs improvement.
