Elements used in the Finding Aid Creation Tool
The OhioLINK Finding Aid Creation Tool requires, and optionally allows for, the use of a specific set of EAD elements. The two lists linked below include all of the elements that are included for use in the Tool.
On the following lists, the name of each element links to a detailed content guideline page which defines the element, provides some input guidance, and gives examples of the element as used in a sample finding aid. These guidelines also function as help pages when accessed via the Finding Aid Creation Tool itself.
