A reminder that the SAA Encoded Archival Standards Section will be hosting a webinar on Wednesday, April 12th, 10:00-11:00am (Pacific time), to highlight recommendations for using EAD3 -- from the EAD3 Study Group initiative.

The webinar will highlight the "Implementing EAD3: Search and Exploration" report (, prepared by Sarah Buchanan (University of Texas), Michele Combs (Syracuse University), J. Gordon Daines III (Brigham Young University), Cory Nimer (Brigham Young University), and Elizabeth Russey Roke (Emory University). The report summarizes the results of the Study Group's work to review the impact of newly introduced EAD3 elements on user discovery tasks. For each element, the group has provided a discussion of the desired functionality and possible discovery interface implementations, as well as a series of recommendations on encoding. An analysis of the costs and benefits of using these elements is also provided to assist community members in their decision-making.

Details for joining us on the webinar, on the day of the event:

We'll also circulate a link to a recording of the webinar, if you can't make it.
