<daoset> Digital Archival Object Set

<daoset> is a new element in EAD3 used within <did> to group sets of links to digital archival objects. It should not be confused with the deprecated <daogrp>, which was a different way to handle grouping of <dao> elements.

Attributes

  • @altrender – not required. Use if the content of the element should be displayed or printed differently than the rendering established in a style sheet for other occurrences of the element.
  • @audience – not required. Use to set whether the element’s contents will be visible to external users or to internal ones. Possible values are: “internal” and “external.”
  • @base – not required. May contain a URI to create a base URI used to resolve any relative URIs used within the child elements, if the base URI differs from the base URI of the EAD instance.
  • @coverageREQUIRED. Defines whether the description refers to the whole or just part of the materials. Possible values: whole, part
  • @encodinganalog – not required. May contain information to map this tag to a particular element in another schema.
  • @id – not required. Creates an ID for element. Can be used for linking.
  • @label – not required. This can be used when a meaningful display label for an element can’t be derived by the stylesheet from its name.
  • @lang – not required. Three-letter code that indicates the language in which the element’s contents were written. It should come from ISO 639-2b.
  • @localtype – not required. This attribute may be used within a number of elements. Its use and values are not defined by the schema and may be defined locally.
  • @script – not required. Four-letter code that indicates the script in which the element’s contents were written. It should come from ISO 15924.

Child Elements

<daoset> must contain a minimum of two <dao> elements. These may be followed by a <descriptivenote> to describe the digital objects.

Example
