Hi Athena --

Attachments don't come through on the list, so we can't see your diagram.  Is it 
online somewhere, so you could provide a URL?  As it is, I'm not quite sure what 
it is you're doing.  Are you saying that you want to use EAD to describe these 
digital objects, and that the EAD will be ingested by your digital repository 
somehow?

If so, could you explain why you've chosen EAD for this?  Not that it won't 
work, but there are other schemas that were specifically designed for digital 
object description (e.g. MODS) that might be a better match.

Or perhaps you're using EAD for your finding aids, and you want to point (or 
link) to digital objects stored in your repository?
