    • The Archives Hub ~ Digital Representations of Archives
    • Definition
      • Digital Archival Objects are:
      • Electronic representations of the described materials
      • They may be:
      • Files, images, audio-visual, text
    • The EAD behind the display
      • Digital Archival Objects <dao>
      • Digital Archival Object group <daogrp>
      • Digital Archival Object location <daoloc>
      • Digital Archival Object description <daodesc>
    • Options for DAO
      • Embedding images for display
      • Linking to files
      • Embedding images and linking to high-resolution images
      • Two or more objects described as a group
    • How it works
      • We link to objects on YOUR server
      • The objects are your responsibility
      • We follow standard practice, as dictated by EAD and HTML
    • Adding objects to Archives Hub descriptions
      • The objects are on your own system
      • URLs must be persistent
      • Think about image size
      • Think about appropriate descriptions to use
      • Add to collection level and lower-level units
