The Society of American Archivists' (SAA) Technical Subcommittee on Encoded Archival Standards (TS-EAS), in collaboration with the Encoded Archival Standards Section Steering Committee, will be hosting an April webinar to introduce proposed changes to the EAC-CPF standard.
Encoded Archival Context - Corporate bodies, Persons, and Families (EAC-CPF) is an international standard maintained by SAA for encoding contextual information about persons, corporate bodies, and families related to archival materials.
As of March 16, 2021, a draft version of the updated standard ("version 2.0") is available for public review and comment on the EAC-CPF website:
The deadline for comments on the change proposals is June 30, 2021; for details, please see the EAC-CPF website.
Join us on this upcoming webinar for an overview of proposed revisions -- and a chance to ask questions about the changes and register your feedback. We will be hosting the webinar twice (presenting the same content at each webinar), to accommodate an international audience.
