EAD Revision

EAD3 is now available! Adopted by SAA Council in July 2015, the latest version of Encodd Archival Description was published to the community the following month. See the official EAD site at the Library of Congress for more information. Various documents related to the revision of EAD are attached below. 

The delivery of EAD3 completed the Technical Subcommittee for Encoded Archival Description's charge. TS-EAD will soon be replaced with a new Technical Subcommittee for Encoded Archival Standards. Until TS-EAS is charged, questions regarding EAD should be directed to the EAD listserv or directly to former TS-EAD co-chairs Michael Rush and Bill Stockting.
