International Standard Archival Authority Record for Corporate Bodies, Persons and Families [ISAAR(CPF)]

Developed by the International Council on Archives (ICA).

The International Standard Archival Authority Record for Corporate Bodies, Persons and Families [ISAAR(CPF)] is a content model and a companion standard to General International Standard Archival Description (ISAD(G)). ISAAR(CPF) provides guidelines for recording authority data for entitites associated with archival materials. The model defines 27 elements in four areas of an authority record (Identity, Description, Relationships, and Control), and includes general content guidelines. It also includes information on linking these records to descriptions of archival materials and other authority records. The ISAAR(CPF) content model, along with ISAD(G), serves as the foundation of Describing Archives: A Content Standard (DACS).
