provide the international archival community an opportunity to test
the schema and review the Tag Library in order to provide corrections,
comments, and suggestions to the EACWG for its consideration before

available for review for 60 days, and the final version will be
released soon thereafter. Please plan to take the time to test the
schema, review the Tag Library, and provide the EACWG with your
