Alrighty, our group met this morning and decided to start with entering our accessions information. Lee will be entering that from our handwritten log, which was started in 1975. Go, Lee!  Should be straightforward data entry except for a few deaccessioned items whose call #s were later re-used.

Meanwhile, Phil, Lauren and Amanda will be working on making our EAD files vaildate against the schema and then batch importing those. We’re doing that now because our test import failed. 😦 Then we read the manual (smart idea!) and realized we need to just move to the schema now and then import. The only down side of that is that our state EAD consortium (TARO) still only handles EAD files using the DTD. Bummer.
