Encoded Archival Description

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>
        • encodinganalog=
        • normal=
      • <address>
        • encodinganalog=
