EAD Tag Library for Version 1.0


EAD Elements: <change> Change

Description:

An optional subelement in the <revisiondesc> portion of <eadheader> used for a brief description of an update made to an EAD document. Additions to a finding aid or significant recoding should be noted, but not correction of a few typographical errors. The <change> element is modeled on a header element in the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) DTD. The TEI recommends that revisions be entered and numbered in reverse chronological order, with the most recent <change> first.

The <edition> element can be used to designate a finding aid that has been so substantively changed that it constitutes a new version and supersedes earlier versions of the finding aid.
