EAD validation error container "type" (for ArchivesSpace users)

Login to join this discussion, or follow the forum conversation!

During your finding aid submission process, you may encounter an error that looks like this:

/apps/dsc/data/in/oac-ead/submission/example.xml:61:0:ERROR:SCHEMASV:SCHEMAV_CVC_DATATYPE_VALID_1_2_1: Element '{urn:isbn:1-931666-22-9}
container', attribute 'type': '' is not a valid value of the atomic type 'xs:NMTOKEN'.

This is an issue in which the containers indicated in the EAD record have an empty "type" attribute. Looking at the XML file, you may see something like this:

            <unittitle>Series 2</unittitle>
                label="Mixed Materials" 
                type="">Box 6

Please feel free to open up the resource record and indicate the "Container Type," as shown in this image:
