Colleagues outside of North America have been seeking an easy way to
obtain Encoded Archival Description (EAD) guides published by the
Society of American Archivists (SAA).  We are pleased to report that
the Research Libraries Group (RLG) has partnered with SAA to make
this possible.

Individuals and institutions outside of North America may now use an
order form at the RLG Web site to purchase copies of "Encoded
Archival Description Application Guidelines," version 1.0 (1999, 330
pp.), and "Encoded Archival Description Tag Library," version 1.0
(1998, 262 pp.).  Orders will be filled from RLG's London office, so
that purchasers save on shipping costs and receive the books more

The order form provides for a choice of payment method:
publications can be charged either to VISA or MasterCard or (by RLG
members and customers) to an existing RLG account.

To order, UK/JANET sites can use
Other European sites are likely to find a faster connection.  (A link at the
foot of RLG Web pages enables readers to change their access pathway
at any time.)

For more information about these publications, see at SAA's Web
site.  Questions about this special ordering arrangement can be sent
