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)

countrycode=
mainagencycode= (repository code)
publicid= (public text owner identifiers?? obsolete?)
identifier= (ARK)
url=
encodinganalog= (maps to URL)
<filedesc>
<titlestmt>
