EAD@10 Symposium Proceedings

From the announcement on the ARCHIVES & ARCHIVISTS mailing list (02008 10 22):


The Society of American Archivists (SAA) and OCLC's RLG Programs sponsored a symposium in August to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Encoded Archival Description (EAD). European speakers discussed how EAD has been implemented in their countries and a group of innovative archivists presented their forward-thinking views about what the next 10 years may bring.

Merrilee Proffitt and Jackie Dooley from OCLC Research are working with panelists to make the proceedings from the day fully available for those who were unable to attend. The first stage of the proceedings -- PowerPoint presentations and audio files (in MP3 format) -- are now available online. Additional material will be available in the near future, including edited versions of the papers presented at the symposium.
