The SAA Encoded Archival Standards (EAS) Section invites you to take part in a survey regarding the use of encoded archival standards (e.g., EAD, EAC-CPF, PREMIS, MODS, METS, etc.).  The goal of the study is to gain a greater understanding of the types of standards our community members interact with, the tools they use, how the use of standards has changed/is changing, and the resources that are most useful for learning about and engaging with these standards.

The survey is primarily multiple choice, with some short answer responses, and we anticipate that it will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. The survey results will be analyzed by the SAA EAS Section leadership and are intended to enable the EAS Section to provide timely, useful, and relevant support to its members going forward.

To participate in the survey, please visit<>

Please complete the survey by the end of the day Friday, January 31st, 2020.
