Dear EAD colleagues,


I hope that this is an appropriate message for this list, but here at
The European Library (
<> ) we are about to start a project
that I think will be of particular interest to EAD enthusiasts...


The European Library, based in the National Library of the Netherlands
in The Hague, is about to start working on cross-domain collaboration
between Museums, Archives, Audio-visual Archives and Libraries, to
create the European Digital Library.  The interoperability of metadata,
plays a central role to the success of this initiative.  This
initiative, called EDLnet, is a Thematic Network run under the European
Commission's eContent Plus Programme. More information about the EDLnet
Thematic Network is available at:


Of particular interest to EAD colleagues is the role of the
Interoperability Manager. Amongst their tasks will be coordinating the
interoperability between Libraries, Museums and Archives metadata -
where we anticipate - for the archives sector - EAD will be a central
player.  More details about this post:
erability_manager and the other posts available are available on The
European Library website: 


Thank you for your time,


With best wishes,


Sally Chambers
