We will not cover any aspects of system administration, however, which are still necessary for publishing and maintaining anything on a web server. Instead, all of the EAD files that you will publish "online" will be running off of your own laptop, via localhost. At the end of the workshop, though, you will have performed hands-on exercises that will provide you with a better understanding of how XML, XSLT, and XSLT processors can work together to prepare EAD finding aids for publication online.
Upon completing this workshop, you'll have:
- Received a crash-course overview of EAD, HTML, CSS, and XSLT;
- Ingested and indexed EAD finding aids into a database;
- Explored and (slightly) modified an XSLT style sheet that converts EAD into HTML;
- Discussed other strategies to get EAD finding aids onto the Web
Who should attend:
Archivists and others who are charged with the management of EAD files and/or putting finding aids online.
