EAD Elements

<address> Address


A generic element for information about the place where someone or something is located and may be reached. Examples include a postal address for a repository, or the electronic mail address and phone number of the party granting publication permission.

Consider using an entity reference to store address information that occurs in many finding aids, as it is easier to update the information when located in a single, shared file. The entity reference can contain both the EAD elements and their content. A style sheet can also be used to supply this kind of information.
