EAD MARC MODS EAC-CPF MARC Authorities MADS

<eac-cpf> • <control> • <cpfDescription> <identity> <description> <relations>

 Purpose: Establish name authority for the CPF entity being described.  <entityType>  One or more <nameEntry> or <nameEntryParallel>

 Purpose: Provide structured or narrative description of the CPF entity being described.

 Structured fields • <existDates> • <function> • <languageUsed> • <legalStatus> • <mandate> • <occupation> • <place> • <localDescription>

 Narrative fields • <biogHist> • <generalContext> • <structureOrGenealogy>

 Purpose: Establish relationships between the CPF entity being described and other CPF entities, resources, or functions  <cpfRelation>  <resourceRelation>  <functionRelation>

 Social Networks and Archival Context (SNAC)  Princeton University Library Finding Aids  Duke University, Doris Duke Profile  Tufts University Digital Collections and Archives, TAPER  Brown University, The Gordon Hall and Grace Hoag Collection of Dissenting and Extremist Printed Propaganda

 Harvard Library Lab • Innovation and research • Financial support • Technical support  Beinecke-Houghton collaboration  Why we picked Johnson

 Learn Find about EAC-CPF out what a “rich” EAC-CPF record might be Explore “sharing” pieces of archival description

 All hands best practices meeting with Kathy Wisser (TS-EAC chair, Simmons faculty)  Three additional meetings for project planning and review  Hired two 3-month, full-time interns • Brooke McManus (Houghton) • Mary Yearl (Beinecke)

 78 researched and hand-coded EAC-CPF records  Best practices documentation • Encoding best practices expressed as a Schematron schema

SIDEBAR XML Schema ... expresses constraints on the structure and content of valid EAC-CPF documents (above and beyond the basic constraints imposed by XML itself) XML Schematron schema ... expresses additional constraints beyond those of the schema, allowing for “local practice” validation rules

 78 researched and hand-coded EAC-CPF records  Best practices documentation • Encoding best practices expressed as a Schematron schema • Descriptive best practices documented in a (now public) wiki  Local SNAC software installation

 Hard to manage this relational work in a document-based environment  Hard to know when and where to stop  Handcrafting: worth the time and effort?  The promise of Linked Open Data  Need for shared vocabulary to express relationships

 Need for tools  Collaboration was easier than expected (except for distance and communication)  Lack of tradition in this descriptive practice made it easier  Compatible institutions, collections, and goals made it easy

 Kings are both persons and corporate bodies  A cat is a person

 How will EAD and EAC-CPF interact?  How will EAC-CPF be maintained and shared?  What will happen at the national level? • National Archival Authorities Cooperative

 Local • Yale: Plans to implement EAC-CPF as part of finding aid database redesign • Harvard: Discussing potential implementation  Shared • Develop RDF vocabulary for relations • Exploring and supporting tool development  ArchivesSpace , xEAC  International • Conceptual model for archival description • EAC-Functions • Encoded Archival Guide
