Dear colleagues,

After the release of the first minor EAD3 revision in June, SAA’s Technical Subcommittee on Encoded Archival Standards (TS-EAS) wants to gather basic information from institutions, companies and individuals, who have already implemented EAD3 or intend to implement it in the near future, in order to support them in the best possible way. Therefore the subcommittee is distributing an EAD3 implementation survey. This survey is found here:

Please take the time to complete this survey. It will take about 15 minutes of your time, but your input is highly appreciated. The survey will be open until the 15th of September 2018. Following the closure of the survey, TS-EAS will disseminate the results to all relevant communities. All responses will be anonymized in any dissemination. If you have any questions about this survey or the dissemination of results, you can address them to this email address: [log in to unmask].


Please spread this message also via your own communication channels. Thank you very much in advance for your contribution.


Best wishes,


Wim van Dongen

On behalf of the SAA TS-EAS
