Revision of Encoded Archival Description (EAD)  Call for Comments

In February this year the Society of American Archivists charged a new
subcommittee of the Standards Committee, the Technical Subcommittee for
Encoded Archival Description (TS-EAD), to undertake a revision of the
standard within a period of 5 years.

To ensure the greatest possible input from EAD users around the world, the
subcommittee has an extensive international membership and is calling for
proposed changes to the current version, EAD 2002. The deadline for change
proposals is 28 February 2011.

The timetable for this revision process is as follows  NB this is an
indicative timetable and may be subject to change.

30 September 2010:    Call for comments
28 February 2011:       Deadline for comments
August 2011:              Forum for discussion at SAA Annual Meeting
Spring 2012:                Working meeting of TS-EAD (subject to funding)
December 2012:          Release of draft schema for testing and comment
August 2013:              Publish revised version at SAA Annual Meeting

In completing the revision process the subcommittee will take note of the
Design Principles for Enhancements to EAD published at the time of the last
revision. The subcommittee will take account also of the global success of
EAD and current implementation practice. It will endeavour to encourage
continued adoption of EAD as a tool for the online dissemination of archival
information by ensuring that EAD is as economical and straightforward as
possible to implement and use.

To propose changes, please fill out the form at
http://www.archivists.org/standards/ead/eadRevisions.asp. Please fill in a
separate form for each change suggested, with a brief description and the
rationale for the proposed change.  Comments may also be sent by e-mail to
[log in to unmask] and should include the information in the form.

To ensure that the revision process is as open as possible, all comments
must be attributable to named individuals and affiliated organisations where
appropriate.  Anonymous responses will not be considered. All change
proposals will be made publicly available, with attribution, in a forum to
be determined. E-mail addresses are asked for so that we may contact
respondents for clarification, but will not be shared.
