EAD3 is here!

After five years of work by the Technical Subcommittee for Encoded Archival Description (TS-EAD) and the Schema Development Team, EAD3 has arrived. TS-EAD submitted the updated encoding standard for review by the Standards Committee in June, and SAA Council unanimously voted to adopt EAD3 as an SAA-approved standard last week. TS-EAD will make the final EAD3 schemas available prior to the SAA Annual Meeting in Cleveland, where copies of the EAD3 Tag Library will be available for purchase.
