Can anybody tell me what the best method is for including the ISAD(G)
data element "Dates of Accumulation" in an EAD document? In the mapping
from ISAD(G) to EAD in the Beta EAD Application Guidelines, the
following  instructions were given to accommodate dates of accumulation:
"EAD <date> with "type = accumulation" attribute in <p> in
<custodhist>". However, in the Version 1.0 Tag Library the <custodhist>
tag may not contain a <date> tag, similarly, the <date> tag may not
appear in the <custodhist> tag. Therefore, until the new Application
Guidelines are released, we seem to have no place to accommodate dates
of accumulation in the EAD.

Thanks.
