...
Karen Weiss, Catalog and Internet Resources Manager at the Smithsonian Archives of American Art related her experience with Encoded Archival Description.Karen reviewed the description and history of her collection, describing how staff had earlier created printed finding aids for microfilm inventories of documents related to American art and artists.At first the Archives used the MARC-AMC format for cataloging their records, but discovered that the EAD proved more flexible in that the SGML language could more easily migrate to HTML and XML.Furthermore, field 856 in MARC records provides links to finding aids, including EAD.As of July 2, 2000, twenty-three EAD finding aids may be found by users on the web http://www.aaa.si.edu/findaids/findaids.htm though the end user product still needs some work.Karen reported that the bad news about EAD is that it is labor intensive, requires technical and systems expertise and changes the workflow that previously existed.
