EAD Component

The EAD component form is used for editing the metadata of individual components within the finding aid. This form can be accessed from the Admin Home page by expanding the components list in the Guide List table or by clicking on a link in the EAD form table of contents.

The component form's functionality is basically identical to the EAD Core form. There are three tabs:

  • Descriptive Identification (<did>)
  • Component-level Information
  • Subcomponents

The Unit Title in the <did> is the only required field within a component. These three tabs mimic the three sections in the Archival Description <archdesc> tab in the EAD Core web form.

If adding subcomponents, the table of contents menu in the left column will be updated upon saving the document.

See example, below:
