EAD3: What's New | October 23, 2014

Presentation Icon
EAD3 brings changes small and large to Encoded Archival Description. After a decade since the previous revision, EAD3 attempts to balance competing priorities of simplifying when possible, reconciling with EAC-CPF when prudent, better supporting the capture and exchange of structured data when needed, and respecting existing EAD community practice when necessary. The webinar will review the significant changes in EAD3, covering elements and attribute that have been modified from EAD 2002, adapted form EAC-CPF, and added new.

Upon completion of this course, you will:
  • Describe the new features of EAD3.
  • Recognize the changes made to existing features of EAD 2002.
  • Give examples of key features of EAD3.
  • Assess the advantages of migrating to EAD3.

Who Should Attend:
archivists who encode finding aids in EAD; developers responsible for maintaining finding-aid databases; students familiar with EAD who want to learn the latest developments

What You Should Already Know:
This webcast will assume that you have a basic familiarity with the elements and attributes of EAD 2002. The focus of this offering is on the changes and new features in EAD3, not on explaining all of the conventions of the schema.
