Webinar: Introducing the new version of the Encoded Archival Context - Corporate bodies, Persons, and Families (EAC-CPF) standard

The Society of American Archivists' (SAA) Technical Subcommittee on Encoded Archival Standards (TS-EAS), in collaboration with the Encoded Archival Standards Section Steering Committee, will be hosting a webinar in November 2022 to introduce the new version of the EAC-CPF standard.
