Encoded Archival Description Tag Library, Version 2002
<extptr> Extended Pointer
An empty linking element that uses attributes to connect the EAD document to an external electronic object, which is not part of the materials being described. Examples include graphic representations of a repository's seal or logo, and pointers to an institution's web page.
Use the ENTITYREF or HREF attribute to identify the external object.
Do not confuse with the Pointer <ptr> element, which is an internal link for movement from one place in a finding aid to another place in the same finding aid.
While XML Linking Language (XLink) Version 1.0, which is the basis for EAD linking elements, is a stable document, examples of EAD usage are hypothetical and have not been tested in real XLink-based applications. Those wishing to use XLink are encouraged to consult the specification available online at <http://www.w3.org/TR/xlink/>.
