Subject:      EAD & ISADG
To: Multiple recipients of list EAD <[log in to unmask]>

This is something for the working group to look  at concering
suggested alterations to the EAD DTD.

I have been involved in mapping the EAD to ISADG which although this
can be easily done there are three wrinkles in the tranisition which
could be usefully ironed out at this stage.

It is with  ISAD(G) elements of description  3.1.4, 3.4.1
& 3.4 .4  which describe  level of description, legal status, and
language of material of the unit of description where the wrinkles
occur.  Using the EAD these three are dealt with as
attributes of the <archdesc> element  rather than being sub elements or
elements of the <did>.  They cannot be put  in the
preferred  ISAD(G) order and  it would be helpful  to be able to recreate
the original order of ISAD(G) using the EAD.

It is also  important to be able to have visible the element
describing the  level of the finding aid being described  (eg, fond,
series, item) which is not currently a default.
