Bentley Library EAD 2002 Tag Set

Examples

This list represents the set of EAD element tags that might be used in a BHL finding aid, some are required elements, others are optional. Some may rarely be used. The layout of this documents attempts to illustrate the nesting of elements within EAD. The correspondence is not perfect, but generally helps convey the structure of a Bentley EAD finding aid. References to "the system" are to the DLPS (University of Michigan, Digital Library Production Services) search, conversion and display scripts and procedures. In many cases, rather than hard encoding <head> elements into the .xml file, the system will generate headers and punctuation based on attribute values or the context of an element.
