Archival Processing Documentation: Home
Scope & Contents
UB Special Collections uses ArchivesSpace to create and publish Encoded Archival Description (EAD) as well as manage accessions and other collections-related documentation. EAD is an international metadata transmission XML standard that allows us to store, repurpose, and migrate the information and publish it as a finding aid. It is maintained by the Technical Subcommittee for Encoded Archival Standards of the Society of American Archivists, in partnership with the Library of Congress.
