Category:XML import / export
Target version:-
Google Code Legacy ID: Tested version:
Sponsored:No Requires documentation:


1. Create archival description in Dublin Core template
2. Add "type" e.g., collection
3. Save record
4. Export as EAD.XML (This is not recommended practice, a user would typically export Dublin Core as DC.XML not EAD.XML)
5. View EAD

-- Resulting Error ---
Type Field information is not in EAD export

-- Expected Result --
Not sure... but maybe we could add an EAD element/attribute in which the information from Type field could be crosswalked.
