Open Session on EAD Revision, 26 July 2023, 3.30pm UTC

In the context of this year's SAA Annual Meeting Archives * Records 2023, the Technical Subcommittee on Encoded Archival Standards (TS-EAS) invites you to join the team for an open session on the ongoing major revision of the Encoded Archival Description (EAD).


Topics discussed as part of the revision have so far ranged:

            from the alignment between EAD and its sibling standard, the Encoded Archival Context - Corporate Bodies, Persons, and Families (EAC-CPF), version 2.0,

            via a general review of the identification and description of relations within EAD,

            to a more detailed review of most of the EAD-specific elements.

Furthermore, TS-EAS has looked at EAD's connection to other standards, first and foremost the new Records in Contexts (RiC) Conceptual Model and Ontology.


With this open session, we want to share some of our current thoughts with the community and engage with EAD users and implementers to gather their feedback, while we enter the phase of drafting the first version of the new EAD schema.


To join us on Wednesday, 26 July, between 3.30 and 5pm UTC, please register via the following link:
