Finding aids are inventories, indexes, or guides that are created by archival and manuscript repositories to provide information about specific collections.The EAD Document Type Definition (DTD) is a standard for encoding archival finding aids using Extensible Markup Language (XML). The standard is maintained in the Network Development and MARC Standards Office of the Library of Congress (LC) in partnership with the Society of American Archivists.
