Encoding Finding Aids using EAD

Class Description

Encoded Archival Description (EAD) is an XML vocabulary endorsed by the Society of American Archivists used to store metadata associated with archival finding aids. This workshop begins by providing an overview of the basic concepts of XML. Then, using the EAD Tag Library and EAD Application Guidelines as the basis for discussion, the structure of EAD is examined in detail. Attendees will also be led through a series of hands-on exercises that cover the entire EAD document life-cycle from initial encoding to distribution on the Web. Any attendee wishing to use his or her actual finding data during the classroom exercises is encouraged to do so.

Price per Attendee: $605

Target Audience

The primary audience for this class is document architects, archivists or developers tasked with the responsibility of creating SGML/XML EAD documents. No prior knowledge of XML is required.
