This is a link to RGL's [EAD Best Practice Guide]

Overview of EAD Structure:

<eadheader> contains information describing the finding aid itself
<frontmatter> contains prefatory matter incorporating information useful for the display or publication of the finding aid
<archdesc> contains description of archival materials and associated administrative and contextual information

Example:

<ead>
<eadheader>
lanencoding=
relatedencoding= (this section is often mapped to Dublin Code for easier search-ability)
repositoryencoding=
countryencoding=
dateencoding=
<eadid> (content must uniquely identify the EAD instance, should include at least one of the following: publicid, identifier, or url)
countrycode=
mainagencycode= (repository code)
publicid= (public text owner identifiers?? obsolete?)
identifier= (ARK)
url=
encodinganalog= (maps to URL)
<filedesc>
<titlestmt>
<titleproper> (use for formal title of the finding aid itself and not the title of the fonds or record group being described)
encodinganalog=
<author> (record the person or institution responsible for the intellectual content of the encoded finding aid)
encodinganalog=
<publicationstmt>
<publisher>
encodinganalog=
<date>
