Hi Suzanne,

You can import barcodes from EAD by including the barcode value in parenthesis inside of the container/@label attribute.

For example:
<container type="box" label="mixed_materials (D0123456$)">1</container>

In the Preview of 1.5.0 webinar, someone mentioned being able to add the barcode field through EAD. They said you could put the barcode in parenthesis in the container label section. Can anyone show me a snippet of what this looks like?

Thank you,
