Encoded Archival Description Tag Library, Version 2002
<processinfo> Processing Information
Information about accessioning, arranging, describing, preserving, storing, or otherwise preparing the described materials for research use. Specific aspects of each of these activities may be encoded separately within other elements, such as <acqinfo>, <arrangement>, <physloc>, etc.
In EAD Version 1.0 <processinfo> was a subelement of Administrative Information <admininfo>, which has been deprecated in EAD 2002 (see Appendix B). The new Description Group <descgrp> element, which can group any of the <did>-level elements (except the Description of Subordinate Components <dsc>), may be used to wrap elements where a group heading is desirable. The <descgrp> element can be used to replace <admininfo> where it has been used as a wrapper when converting finding aids encoded in EAD V1.0 to EAD 2002.
The <processinfo> element is comparable to ISAD(G) data element 3.7.1 and MARC field 583. A <date> within a <processinfo><p> element is comparable to ISAD(G) data element 3.7.3.
