      Those familiar with the Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML)
      will recognize its great flexibility with respect to organizing data.
      The Encoded Archival Description (EAD) is an SGML "application" for
      filing information about archival materials and other collections.
      This book takes the EAD Document Type Definition (DTD), and presents
      it in a more "people readable" form.

      The content is still highly formal and technical. Those without a
      strong SGML background will find it very heavy going. However, the
      persistent reader will be able to pick up some interesting points,
      while slogging through the text. (In fact, for those not used to
      fighting their way through DTDs, it may be found that the introduction
      and EAD design principles are best understood after reading through
      the overview of the EAD structure.)

      There is some explanation of the tag library conventions, and a
      listing of attributes. The main body of the work, of course, is the
      library of EAD elements, and their descriptions. This really is
      merely a reformatting of the DTD.
