Finding aids - and the nature of the collections they represent - are not inherently easy to search. While the catalog at Auburn University Libraries d have a MARC record for most finding aids, this information was still basic at best. Additionally, many finding aids were being edited for Encoded Archival Description (EAD) compliance. To allow for full searching, a project was launched to create a digital collection of finding aids, exposed to search engines and accessible anywhere online. In an effort to maximize the metadata being created, minimize duplication of work, and extend how patrons can discover the Libraries' collections, staff investigated how to standardize and share that data between systems.
