How are you creating the EAD docs in Fedora?  At present, we're using archivist's toolkit to dump out ead xml files and then I index them in solr, with blacklight displaying the entire document as well.  It's messy and it would be nice to make a more efficient connection between the three (BL, Fedora and Solr).  I'd love to show everyone what I have, but they keep us on a private network here.

+1. Potential options could include using an XML database like eXist,
or using our approach at Yale (where EAD finding aids are stored as
datastreams in Fedora objects). I've been eager to look at rethinking
our approach, especially given the availability of the Hydra codebase.

Rock & Roll: (noun) African American slang dating back to the early 20th Century. In the early 1950s, the term came to be used to describe a new form of music, steeped in the blues, rhythm & blues, country and gospel. Today, it refers to a wide variety of popular music -- frequently music with an edge and attitude, music with a good beat and --- often --- loud guitars. 2005 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.
