TS-EAS updates: schema design principles, submitting feature requests/reporting bugs, and SAA 2020 meeting notes

SAA's Technical Subcommittee for Encoded Archival Standards (TS-EAS) is pleased to highlight the following new resources in our GitHub repository, following on the SAA 2020 annual conference:

  • We've updated our procedural handbook, to include a set of design principles that we began to formulate in early 2020 -- and codified at the conference. The design principles reflect recent decisions and will guide future discussions for the development of EAD, EAC-CPF, and any other schemas that might be added to the EAS family in the future.
  • The handbook also includes a new section summarizing how to submit a feature request or report a bug pertaining to EAD or EAC-CPF, and also features a brief video tutorial now on SAA's YouTube channel.

Last, our meeting notes from the conference are available in our GitHub repository:

Stay tuned for more announcements coming your way in the near future.
