1. Create archival description in AToM 2.0.1 and add language of material and script at fonds/collection level. Save.
2. Add lower level (e.g., series) and add a different language of material and script at series level. Save.
3. Export EAD. Review EAD.XML

  • Unexpected Error *
    Language of material and language of script in lower-level is missing from EAD.

Expected Behaviour
Lower levels should have all their language of materials and scripts information in the EAD export.

NOTE: If you export the series level ONLY, clicking on EAD export at the series level and not the fonds/collection level, then the language of materials and language of script is properly exported in the EAD. This is still a problem, because users are not going to export every level of a collection as a single EAD file. The workflow is to export the entire fonds/collection in one EAD file.
