Hi Patrick,

If you're willing, send me the file directly and I can try to troubleshoot and report back.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] EAD File Importing and Verification

Good afternoon,

I've been tasked with figuring out why a simple EAD file fails to be imported into ArchivesSpace. I suspect it's an error with the XML file's formatting, such as a missing tag, but I don't know enough about the file type to verify it by eye. I thought I'd ask if there's any tool archivists use to verify that their EAD files are correct. When imported into ArchivesSpace, the job fails and there is an empty error log; I don't have anything else to go on, unfortunately.

Thank you very much for your time,
