EAD 2002 Tagging Guidelines

The following sample emphasizes the position and presence of specific elements/attributes in both the outsource encoded and newly authored finding aids. While this is NOT a template (a template is forthcoming), the sample does highlight items which play an important role in identifying and indexing the finding aids. As such, you would want to follow the guidelines here as closely as possible. Note the italicized text as well as the linked items throughout the page.
